Integrated Review Groups

Review activities of the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) are organized into Integrated Review Groups (IRGs). Each IRG represents a cluster of study sections in a general scientific area. Applications generally are assigned first to an IRG, and then to a specific study section within that IRG for evaluation of scientific merit.
A list of the IRGs is below. For each of the IRG's study sections, a general description, specific research areas covered, and shared interests with other study sections are given.
 
Click on an individual IRG below to view a listing of all study sections and abbreviations, names of the Scientific Review Officers (SROs). Meeting rosters can be found at http://public.csr.nih.gov/RosterAndMeetings/.
 
The study sections within the various IRGs mainly review research project grant applications and a few Research Career Award applications. Most National Research Service Award individual fellowship applications (NRSA) are reviewed in special study sections that are designated for these reviews.
