On behalf of NIAID and our research community, we gratefully acknowledge all the peer reviewers and advisory committee members who gave their valuable time and effort in fiscal year (FY) 2020. You make an irreplaceable contribution to biomedical science.

Let’s start by saying Thank You to Members of NIAID Peer Review Groups and Advisory Committees, including NIAID's Council Members. If you spot any issues with your entry on either list, email us at

For applications and proposals related to the COVID-19 pandemic, reviewers continue to handle unusually heavy workloads. We deeply appreciate their ongoing efforts.

We also give thanks to all who served at the NIH level. You may find your name through NIH's Center for Scientific Review Study Sections index.

Contribute to a Worthy Cause

Experienced investigators, you can help NIAID fund the best science by Serving on a Peer Review Committee.

Your service helps the scientific community, and in turn, you can gain a new understanding of what reviewers expect for your own future applications.

For insight into what it’s like to be a reviewer, you could find your colleagues on the list of Members of NIAID Peer Review Groups and Advisory Committees and ask them to share their experiences.
