NIH Genome Research Review Committee Established

NIH Acting Director William F. Raub recently announced the establishment of the Genome Research Review Committee to achieve greater consistency of review and more efficient evaluation of applications and proposals.

The committee will provide a primary review of applications for research and training grants related to the NIH Human Genome Program, a function previously carried out by ad hoc review groups.

About 100 applications are expected to be assigned to the committee each year, including grant applications, cooperative agreements, contracts, proposals for program projects and centers, institutional training fellowships, conference proposals, and special developmental award programs. The 18 committee members will be outstanding authorities in the scientific fields that fall within the committee's jurisdiction.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
