PCORI Reviewers: Help Us Evaluate Research Funding Applications
We need patients, stakeholders, and scientists who are passionate and committed to act as reviewers for PCORI
Patient, scientific, and healthcare stakeholder reviewers are highly valued members of the PCORI community. Reviewers are essential to helping PCORI fulfill its mission and to fund research that is both scientifically rigorous and truly patient-centered. As part of “research done differently,” PCORI includes patients, caregivers, and other healthcare stakeholders in reviewing funding applications. On merit review panels, patient-stakeholder reviewers and scientific reviewers are represented in equal numbers and their scores equally weighted to ensure that patient and stakeholder perspectives are heard. All reviewers assess the applications against a special set of distinctly PCORI—and patient-centered—criteria.
