What should be included in the ‘Summary of methods’ section?

Describe the sequence of preclinical research projects and clinical trials (phases I to IIIa) to be performed. Be realistic with timelines and specify which projects will be performed during the first funding period (2013-2016) and which projects will be performed during a potential extension (2017-2020). Describe projects in the sequence of the presumed stepwise increase in your understanding of mechanisms, effectiveness or safety of the intervention addressed in your proposal. Be specific about major selection criteria, outcomes, sample size considerations, lab methods and statistical techniques planned for both basic and clinical research projects.
