New Study Section Descriptions

CSR (Center for Scientific Review) has “updated and enhanced” its chartered study section descriptions, which I trust you all use to select the appropriate review group for your applications. These descriptions are intended to be “more transparent and reflective of the types of applications actually reviewed,” as indicated in a recent notice on this enhancement. Updated descriptions of recurring special emphasis panels will be posted in early 2009.

Caveat emptor … I suspect they need to tweak their search function a tad. Or more. Instead, I would recommend you do your first level screening using the one-line descriptors given on the study section roster page. Once you start looking through them, you will find a much simplified and more user-friendly presentation of who wants to read about what.

    and, always, always, always…go to CRISP and search the recently funded projects that have been reviewed in the study section(s) of interest to you.
