Reporting Avenues for Concerns Related to Integrity or Fairness

In the Digestive, Kidney and Urological Systems [DKUS] IRG, the Renal and Urological Sciences Small Business Activities Special Emphasis Panel [DKUS (11)] will review SBIR and STTR grant applications that focus primarily on kidney, urinary tract, and male genital system therapies, devices, and diagnostics.

This includes clinical, translational and fundamental studies and investigators may employ a range of approaches that include genetics, genomics and proteomics, molecular, cell, and computational biology, biochemistry, biophysics and bioengineering, imaging, analyses of model organisms, and human studies.

The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether standing members or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.

Shared Interests and Overlaps

There are shared interests between the small business panels in Kidney, Urology, and Digestive Systems Review Branch (KUDS) and Small Business: Clinical Care and Health Interventions (CCHI 10) in the study of disorders of digestive, kidney, and urological sciences. Applications that focus on development and evaluation of new techniques, therapies, and treatments are reviewed in KUDS. Applications whose aims are patient-oriented and focus on health behavior and risk are reviewed in CCHI 10.

There are shared interests between the small business panels in the Kidney, Urology, and Digestive Systems Review Branch (KUDS) and Small Business: Health Services and Systems (HSS 10) in the study of disorders of digestive, kidney, and urological sciences. Applications that focus on development and evaluation of new techniques, therapies, and treatments are reviewed in KUDS. Applications whose aims focus on implementation of the approach in clinical practice or for use in clinical decision support are reviewed in HSS 10.
