Scientific Review

The Scientific Review Branch (SRB) is responsible for the initial peer review of specific research applications assigned to NIA. These include contract proposals; applications for Centers, program projects, scientific meetings, and training and career development; and submissions responding to requests for applications published by NIA.

Scores for applications reviewed by the NIA SRB will be released within 2 business days after the review meeting. Summary statements for applications reviewed by the NIA SRB will be available 6 weeks after the review meeting and no later than 30 days before the Advisory Council meeting. Applicants can access their summary statement through the Status Module in the eRA Commons.
