The Center for Scientific Review is the portal for NIH grant applications and their initial review for scientific merit. We organize the peer review groups that evaluate the majority of these applications. 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.
Find a Study Section Applications are reviewed in Study Sections (Scientific Review Group, SRG). Integrated Review Groups (IRGs) are clusters of Study Sections based on scientific discipline.
