How Your Application is Reviewed
Most applications for NIH funding are reviewed by Center for Scientific Review (CSR) study sections.
NCCAM Special Emphasis Panels (SEPs) review R21, Phase III, and multi-site clinical trial applications assigned to NCCAM, as well as applications in response to NCCAM RFAs and PAs. For an example of who reviews the applications, see past rosters of NCCAM SEPs.
