The day Nobel prize winner Carol Greider received "the call", she also got her NIH grant proposal triaged. See here Prof. Greider recount this turn of events on that day: invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=t_fHGQnu…
I received another disappointing un-fundable score for my @NIH grant today. I am privileged, and I realize no-one wants to hear me complain. Just sharing to make the point that everyone experiences this kind of feedback, and that it never stops from stinging! 1/3

“On the day you win the Nobel Prize, skeptics may question whether you know what you are doing,” said Nobel Laureate Dr. Carol Greider. Never give up!
