What Do Public Reviewers Do?
Public reviewers read and provide written critiques (usually 1-3 paragraphs) of grant applications.
Their critiques focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the application's public health significance and/or
innovation; on the feasibility of plans for recruitment, retention, and follow-up of subjects; on outreach
efforts to special and historically disadvantaged populations; and on issues pertaining to the protection
of human subjects. At review meetings, public reviewers join the discussion of applications with scientific
reviewers and vote on the merit of each application discussed. Review meetings are typically held in the
Washington, DC area or by telephone conference call.
