Extramural Discovery Science (EDS) has 3 scientific programs with 12 peer review committees (PRCs) that cover the cancer research continuum.
Our Scientific Programs:
While your selection helps guide the sorting of applications, we determine the final placement within PRCs to ensure that it's been assigned to the most appropriate one. You'll receive an acknowledgment letter after the application deadline indicating which PRC will review your application.
Please use the committee code from your previous submission, even if that committee no longer not exists. We’ll assign the application to the PRC with the appropriate expertise. Note that you’ll also need to select the new EDS scientific program that’s associated with your selected PRC.
Example: Your application was previously reviewed by Cancer Drug Discovery (CDD). So you should list CDD in proposalCENTRAL as the previous committee. You also need to select the scientific program is Cell Biology and Preclinical Cancer Research.
The deadline for IRG applications is April 1. The review of IRGs is managed by the Clinical and Cancer Control Research Program.
If your question is about Fall applications, by September 1, send a request for an evaluation of eligibility and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about Spring applications, send by February 15.
