NIH-Wide Data on Impact & Criterion Score Correlations

Ask and ye shall receive … NIH-wide data on the correlation between individual review criterion scores and overall impact score, compliments of Jeremy Berg.

Correlation coefficients between the overall impact score and the five criterion scores for 32,608 NIH applications from the Fiscal Year 2010 October, January and May Council rounds

As he notes, the trends across the ICs mirror what he found at NIGMS. The NIH-wide data also include more mechanisms … whereas Jeremy analyzed 654 R01s from one cycle, these data include all RPG, research center, and SBIR/STTR applications over 3 cycles (Oct-Jan-May Councils). Not sure if we’ll get all his other lovely data at the NIH level, but we can dream. In the meantime, thanks so much for your leadership in disseminating the NIGMS and now these NIH-wide data, Dr. Berg.

    And……Congratulations Dr. Berg!

    Sept. 20, 2010: Jeremy M. Berg, Ph.D., director of NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), is the recipient of the 2011 Howard K. Schachman Public Service Award from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB).

    The annual award recognizes exemplary dedication to public service in support of biomedical science. The award is named after the eminent scientist who chaired the ASBMB’s Public Affairs Advisory Committee from 1989-2000.

    ASBMB President Suzanne Pfeffer, Ph.D., cited Berg for his tireless support of investigator-initiated, fundamental research and his efforts on behalf of individual basic scientists.
