Project Grant: Spring 2021 Peer review participants
The peer review process relies on the time and dedication of experts across the health research spectrum. For the Spring 2021 Project Grant competition, a total of 1390 individuals* (including Chairs , Scientific Officers , reviewers ) participated in 61 peer review committees. There were also 122 early career researcher (ECR) Reviewers in Training present during the peer review process.
*Note: Some individuals played multiple roles, such as chairing one review panel and then acting as a peer reviewer in another, which is why the role counts may not add up to 1390.
Approximately 84% (1179) of the committee members are members of the College of Reviewers, which has specific membership selection criteria. As a first step, CIHR staff provided lists of suggested reviewers based on specific selection criteria, and then all reviewers were vetted by committee Chairs and Scientific Officers.
