Lock icon: This link will not work for public visitors.Some links will work for NIAID staff only.

This SOP has internal roles only.

Standard Operating Procedure Table of Contents

Purpose

To request that the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) conduct initial peer review of applications typically reviewed by NIAID or to request that NIAID review applications usually reviewed by CSR.

Procedure

While CSR reviews most NIH single-project research applications and individual fellowships, NIAID sometimes asks CSR to review applications normally reviewed by the Institute, e.g., applications responding to a request for applications (RFA). Sometimes CSR asks NIAID to review applications that CSR typically handles.

Program Officers

To request that CSR review some of NIAID's applications, send the information below to the Receipt and Referral group at Lock icon: This link will not work for public visitors.Contact for NIAID Staff as soon as an initiative is approved. That group will forward the request to CSR.

  • Scope of request—single event or ongoing.
  • Cooperating ICs; if any.
  • Activity codes.
  • Format of review expected—regular study section or special emphasis panel.
  • Any special submission or referral considerations.
  • Estimated number of responses.
  • Proposed submission date and letter of intent date if applicable.
  • Council date.
  • Assistance that could be provided for this activity or another review.

CSR discourages receipt dates in April, August, or December due to standing expedited review submission dates for SBIR, STTR, fellowships, and AIDS applications.

CSR will send NIAID its decision one to two weeks after the deadline for receiving requests (see chart below).
