Did you know that NIH is the largest funder of biomedical research in the world, to the tune of $40 billion annually? And the NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) reviews approximately 75% of the 88,000 applications that NIH receives annually!
CSR released its strategic plan for 2022-2027. The CSR is responsible for the peer review that makes NIH research possible. The 5 goals identified in CSR’s strategic plan are:
Goal 1: Maintain scientific review groups that provide appropriate scientific coverage and review settings for all of NIH science.
Goal 2: Further develop a large cadre of diverse, well-trained, and scientifically qualified experts to serve as reviewers.
Goal 3: Further develop an outstanding, engaged, and diverse staff.
Goal 4: Implement changes to the peer review process to make it more fair, effective, and efficient.
Goal 5: Achieve our mission through transparency, engagement with the scientific community, and a data-driven approach to decision-making
