    6. 6. BackgroundBackground June 2007 – Feb. 2008 March 2008 – June 2008 September 2008Peer Review Oversight Committee (PROC) Established 4 Working Groups: 1. Engage the Best Reviewers 2. Improve the Quality and Transparency of Review 3. Ensure Balanced and Fair Reviews Across Scientific Fields and Career Stages 4. Evaluation: Continuous Review of Peer Review Enhancing Peer Review: Implementation of Recommended Actions January 2009 Update
    7. 7. Priority Area 1: Engage the Best Reviewers Enhance Reviewer Training • In spring 2009, training will be available to reviewers and Scientific Review Officers related to the changes in peer review. Allow Flexibility through Virtual Reviews • Pilots will be conducted in 2009 on the feasibility of using high-bandwidth support for review meetings to provide reviewers greater flexibility and alternatives for in-person meetings.
    8. 8. Priority Area 2: Improve the Quality & Transparency of Review  Scoring to be changed to a 9 point scale with a separate assessment for impact  In 2009, streamlined applications will receive scores on each criterion in addition to critiques to help applicants assess whether or not they should resubmit an amended application  Shorten and Restructure Applications. Shorter (12 page research plan) R01 applications (with other activity codes scaled appropriately) for January 2010 receipt dates  Special considerations for human subjects research (additional material needed for clarification) The review and scoring process will be changed for most applications submitted for January 2009 deadline and reviewers will use these new guidelines for the May-June 2009 meetings.
    9. 9. Priority Area 3: Ensure Balanced & Fair Reviews across Scientific Fields & Career Stages & Reduce Administrative Burden • Fund Meritorious Science Earlier decreasing number of resubmissions (amendments) from two to one • Identify Early Stage Investigators (ESIs), & establishing goals to encourage funding for new investigators & ESIs • In 2009, where possible, NIH will cluster new investigator applications for review Priority Area 4: Continuous Review of Peer Review
    10. 10. • Conceived in 2004 to promote • Consistency • Transparency • Reproducibility • Mandated by Congress – 2006 Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC) Project Dr. Gaya Dowling will present on this at the May 2009 Council Meeting
    11. 11. Director’s Report to the National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse Budget Update Recent NIDA Activities What’s New @ NIH?
