CSR’s primary role is to handle the receipt and review of ~ 70% of the grant applications that NIH receives. NIH separates the review process from funding decisions.
Reviewers are critical to our mission to see that NIH grant applications receive, fair, independent, expert, and timely reviews. We appreciate the generosity with which reviewers give their time.

Applications are reviewed in study sections (Scientific Review Group, SRG). Integrated Review Groups (IRGs) are clusters of study sections based on scientific discipline.
