Does the application challenge and seek to shift current research or clinical practice paradigms by utilizing
novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions?
• What is the strength of the scientific premise, i.e. the quality and strength of the prior research used as a
basis for the proposed research question? Please refer to NIH guidelines for more clarification.
