The Coalition to Promote Research (CPR) is sponsoring a Congressional briefing entitled, “NIH 101: Peer Review & Priority Setting.”
Friday February 27, Noon – 1:30 p.m.
B-369 Rayburn House Office Building
NIH is the world’s leading supporter of basic biomedical, behavioral, and social science research. Investment in NIH fosters scientific discoveries to enhance the health and well-being of the American people. NIH research has played an important role in extending US life expectancy. Americans can expect to live nearly three decades longer than someone born in 1900. And not only are we living longer, but our quality of life is improving too. The briefing will feature Howard Kurtzman, Ph.D., acting executive director for Science, American Psychological Association, and Keith Yamamoto, Ph.D., vice chancellor for research and executive vice dean of the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.
Drs. Kurtzman and Yamamoto will provide an overview of the NIH peer review process and the types of grants funded by the agency. In addition, they will discuss how NIH sets research priorities and solicits input from the scientific community and the public.
Sponsored by: Coalition to Promote Research in conjunction with: Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Psychological Association, Association of American Medical Colleges, Coalition for Life Science, Consortium of Social Science Associations, Population Association of America, and Research!America
