National Institutes of Health
Updated: December 2007
On this page:
The intent of the appeals process is to provide an avenue for resolving any procedural issues surrounding the review of an application. The appeals process is used when the issue cannot be resolved administratively. Further information on the appeals of initial scientific review can be found in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, Volume 26, Number 38, November 21, 1997.
- The deadline for receipt of all letters is twelve (12) working days prior to the Council meeting.
- In order for NIH staff and Council members to give careful and full consideration to an appeal, every effort should be made to ensure that letters arrive twelve (12) or more working days before the Council meeting. The NHLBI recognizes that there may be extenuating circumstances that prevent a letter from arriving by the deadline, and such letters may be brought to the Council meeting at the discretion of the Institute.
- Meeting dates for the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute can be found at: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/meetings/nhlbac/index.htm#meeting
- The applicant will be notified of Council’s decision within 30 working days after the meeting of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Advisory Council.
