FUNDING: New Videos on NIH Peer Review & Tips for Applicants
The National Institutes of Health’s Center for Scientific Review (CSR) has released a new video to show new applicants and others how NIH assesses over 80,000 grant applications each year to help find those with the most merit. With the majority of NIH’s $31 billion budget supporting grants to researchers, these assessments help ensure investments lead to significant advances in science and health.
“The video provides an inside look at the dynamic way reviewers evaluate NIH grant applications,” said CSR Director Dr. Toni Scarpa. “You’ll see the rigor and integrity of their efforts, which have enabled NIH to identify ground-breaking research year after year.”
CSR also has released a companion video: NIH Tips for Applicants. In this video, the reviewers and NIH staff members featured in the NIH Peer Review Revealed video provide advice to new applicants.
Both the NIH Tips for Applicants and the NIH Peer Review Revealed videos can be viewed and downloaded at http://bit.ly/auN5Jy [CBPR listserv] scb
