Do you want to be an SRRP Reviewer?

The Executive Committee On Research (ECOR) handles a large number of internal funding opportunities that require a peer review process.  This review process is handled through the Subcommittee on Review of Research Proposals (SRRP).  SRRP reviewers provide an essential service to the Mass General Research Community. The SRRP committee reviews most grant applications submitted to ECOR throughout the year for internal research funding opportunities such as FMD Fellowships, Interim Support Funding (ISF), and preliminary reviews for external single institution nominee calls, such as the Pew Scholars and Smith Family awards.

The intent of this call is to expand the review committee while ensuring that the full range of diversity within the research community is represented.  Previous recipients of ECOR funding, including interim funding, and mentors of FMD recipients are especially encouraged to join the SRRP as reviewers. 

We hope to limit reviewers to one or two panels a year.  As a small token of our appreciation to the reviewers, ECOR has set aside funds for this service to the Mass General Research Community ($40 per application reviewed).  To learn more about applying for the SRRP, please read below.

We would greatly appreciate your participation. Having a large and diversified reviewer pool is critical to the success of the process.
