A list of questions that were asked at the end of the webinar is below.

Questions: 

01:17:41
After submitting the letter of intent, do the agency recommend to submit a full proposal?

01:19:34
How important is it to have multi institution proposals to cover the animal and human models well?

01:19:43
Are there any examples of successful proposals available?

01:21:27
Is it okay to submit the LOI wait ahead of time just so that we could figure if our proposal will be a good fit or what changes need to be made? How do these feedbacks be conveyed- via email or phone conversation?

01:21:39
How about a project that proposes pig as an infectious disease model? We do not see pig listed as a model in the RFP.

01:24:27
You had emphasized on the large animal model system, but if the proposal has a large animal model system addressing the animal health and a regular small animal model for the human health- will that meet the requirements?

01:25:07
Are there any plans to established a similar program after this one will be completed?

01:28:23 j
Will this dual purpose PAR be re-issued again?

01:29:26
So if we focus on agricultural insects and human health, the project won't be a good fit to this program?

01:29:39
Do you have a specific format for the LOIs?

01:30:27
Is there continuity in study section members across years? If I revise and resubmit, how likely is it that the same reviewers will review my revised application?

01:31:28
If the program is due to be sunsetted, those grants going in this year (2018) as an A0 - will they then be eligible to go back in as an A01 anywhere?
