NIDDK Peer Review Process

The information on this site applies primarily to applications reviewed in study sections organized by NIDDK staff. Types of applications reviewed include those submitted in response to RFAs, training and mentored career awards, fellowships, program projects, and multi-center clinical trials. Most R01s, R21s, and SBIR grants are reviewed in the Center for Scientific Review (CSR).​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Both the NIH reviewer guidelines and NIDDK Resources for Reviewers may help in understanding the application review process.
