When applying the the National Institutes of Health (NIH), part of the process is finding which study section best fits your research. According to NIH, “Applications are reviewed in study sections (Scientific Review Group, SRG). Integrated Review Groups (IRGs) are clusters of study sections based on scientific discipline.”
If you’re struggling to identify a study section, the NIH Center for Scientific Review is there to help! You can now use their Assisted Referral Tool (ART) to help sort through your options. You only need to input your abstract (and preferably a project title), and ART will generate a list of potential study sections.
As always, Grants & Contracts Administration is here to help you in your funding search as well. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions you may have!
