NIH Issues Tips for Applicants From the NIH Center for Scientific Review

The NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) recently posted and updated several resources to help the community understand more about the peer review process.

Their CSR's Insider's Guide to Peer Review is now updated with new advice on how to produce a highly competitive grant application. These tips, collected from current and former chairs of review study sections, are valuable to both new and established applicants alike.

Additionally, CSR has posted recordings of their Meet the Experts in NIH Peer Review webinar series for new applicants, each focusing on a different type of funding program: Research Project Grants (primarily focusing on the R01), Academic Research Enhancement Awards (AREA/R15s), fellowship awards, and small business grants (SBIR/STTR).

CSR is the portal for receipt and referral of NIH grant applications, and, for the majority of those applications, handles their review for scientific and technical merit. Stay on top of news from CSR by reading more in their Peer Review Notes update.
