Responsibilities & Activities

My duties as scientific review officer include managing Special Emphasis Panel reviews. I use my scientific expertise and communication and interpersonal skills to:

  1. analyze the scientific content of grant applications;
  2. identify the scientists invited to serve on scientific review groups and assign the applications each panel member will review;
  3. organize and run peer review meetings to assess the scientific and technical merit of grant applications; and
  4. provide applicants with a succinct written summary explaining how the review committee viewed the applications.
