There’s a joke in the research world that you don’t submit a research proposal to NIH until you’ve already done the research. When I was a rookie in the biomedical research world, and I was told this cinema vérité version of things, I thought in typical naïveté, ‘but how do you actually fund the research?’ But, as with all jokes that don’t sink in at first, some experience paved the way for understanding upon a future re-telling.
