"Before I joined the NIMH, I reviewed grants for NARSAD. In every case, the discussion went in exactly the opposite direction. We would ask, 'Has somebody done this before?' Then we shouldn't fund it through NARSAD. 'Are we going to find out something we know already?' Then it's not a NARSAD grant. 'Is this truly innovative? Is this cutting edge? Is this something that no one has tried to do before?' If so, then this is a NARSAD Grant."
