NIH Peer Review Process Revealed

The Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell Based Therapies (CRMCBT) is focused on identifying and taking extraordinary science by its associated researchers and collaborators to making heath care solutions that impact people. To accomplish these solutions, knowing the National Institute of Health’s grant application and review process is very important. The Center for Scientific Review (CSR) is the portal for NIH grant applications and their review for scientific merit.

The CSR receives all research grant applications sent to NIH and handle the review of more than 70% of those by organizing peer review groups (study sections) to evaluate research grant applications. Their mission is to see that NIH grant applications receive fair, independent, expert, and timely reviews – free from inappropriate influences or bias allowing the NIH to fund the most promising research.

It is critical for CRMCBT members to educate themselves on the NIH Peer Review Process to allow the best outcomes when submitting grant applications. If you would like more information about Pilot funding through CRMCBT for projects that can lead towards NIH funding or have a regenerative medicine focused NIH potential project, please contact us at brent.toto@osumc.edu.
