How are proposals evaluated?

Each proposal receives a detailed mail review by at least two committee members, who evaluate it numerically for scientific merit and relevance to the cancer problem. For this purpose committee members are selected on the basis of expertise in the relevant area(s) of research and may not be based on the same campus of residence as the author of the proposal. All proposals are subsequently discussed by the full committee, which votes by secret ballot on merit and relevance. Members from the same department or comparable unit as the author of the proposal are excused from the discussion and voting. The committee has the option of “triaging” proposals for which the mail review scores indicate that the likelihood of funding is extremely low.

Projects which cannot be supported at by this fund may be forwarded to network departments with recommendations from local program staff.
