The rationale for the choice of conditions lacks cohesiveness. Although the stated outcome is the identification of new therapeutic targets, the path to how this work in animal models will be expanded into that direction is not stated. Proposed work is timely, innovative and highly relevant to human health; applicants approaches may be key to deepening understanding. No clear description of KT or possible impact of research. Unclear that the work will be broadly impactful. GRANT & PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT OFFICE OF THE VICE DEAN,

RESEARCH AND INNOVATION Examples of Reviewer Comments From Foundation Scheme competitions Objectives seem achievable given the research history and availability of research team and collaborators. Already demonstrated the utility of this approach; strong preliminary data. Unclear how much of the proposed work will be truly driven by the applicant and not collaborators. Unclear that the applicant is as strong in this domain as in primary skill set.
