Meso Foundation Updates its Peer-Review for Research Grant Funding

Microscope

ResearchAs the only non-government funder of peer-reviewed mesothelioma research, the Meso Foundation has announced an update to its peer-review process for evaluating research grant proposals, so as to once again match the process by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Foundation has always modeled its peer-review process after the NIH, so when the NIH made changes in 2013, the Foundation followed suit.

The change involves streamlining the reviews by eliminating the two-step process and replacing it with one step only. Instead of sending a project through two separate rounds of review, which would usually result in a total of 3-4 number of reviewers looking at each project, now all 3-4 reviewers evaluate the project in the one and only round. This ensures a quicker review turnaround and a more efficient process.
