NIH News Release:
NEW VIDEOS REVEAL HOW NIH IDENTIFIES THE MOST PROMISING RESEARCH APPLICATIONS
The National Institutes of Health’s Center for Scientific Review (CSR) today released a new video to show new applicants and others how NIH assesses over 80,000 grant applications each year to help find those with the most merit. With the majority of NIH’s $31 billion budget supporting grants to researchers, these assessments help ensure investments lead to significant advances in science and health.
“The video provides an inside look at the dynamic way reviewers evaluate NIH grant applications,” said CSR Director Dr. Toni Scarpa. “You’ll see the rigor and integrity of their efforts, which have enabled NIH to identify ground-breaking research year after year.”
