How Your Application Is Reviewed


Review Process

Most applications for NIH funding are reviewed by Center for Scientific Review (CSR) study sections (CSR). A list of CSR study sections, their membership rosters and the topics reviewed by these study sections can be found on this website.

NCCIH Special Emphasis Panels (SEPs) review Phase III, and multi-site clinical trial applications assigned to NCCIH, as well as applications submitted in response to NCCIH RFAs and PARs. For an example of who reviews the applications, see the list of recent reviewers.
