What We Do at CSR
CSR is the portal for NIH grant applications and their initial review for scientific merit. We organize the peer review groups or study sections that evaluate the majority (70%) of the research grant applications sent to NIH. Our mission is to see that NIH grant applications receive fair, independent, expert, and timely reviews -- free from inappropriate influences -- so NIH can fund the most promising research.

- 92,000 applications received
- 60,000 applications reviewed at CSR
