Continuous Submission

The NIH has implemented policy and procedures to allow appointed members of NIH review and Advisory Groups, and peer reviewers with recent substantial service (six times in 18 months), to submit their research grant applications (R01, R21, or R34) on a continuous basis and to have those applications undergo initial peer review in a timely manner.
