The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) needs your help to enhance the quality of research supported by the NIH. The ODP is building a directory of experts in research methods and study designs that can help NIH Scientific Review Officers identify the most appropriate reviewers for NIH research applications. Adding your name and expertise to the directory is easy – simply share your methodological and content area expertise by filling out the ODP’s Prevention Research Expertise Survey (PRES).
The survey covers 7 areas related (but not limited) to prevention research:
- Study Design Topics
- Research Methods
- Content Topics
- Income Categories
The PRES takes approximately 15-25 minutes and is strictly voluntary. Based on your skill set and interest, NIH or Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) staff may invite you to serve as a peer reviewer for research applications, or you may be asked to sit on a panel, committee, or workgroup; or to speak at a seminar or workshop. Your responses and information will not be shared with anyone outside of HHS.
The ODP believes the participation of highly qualified methods experts will enhance the quality of peer review; improve the rigor, reproducibility, and impact of research supported by the NIH; and ultimately lead to stronger clinical practice, health policy, and community health programs.
The ODP is the lead office at the NIH responsible for assessing, facilitating, and stimulating research in disease prevention and disseminating the results of this research to improve public health. For more information about the ODP and its work, visit the ODP website.
Thank you in advance for taking the survey – your participation helps improve the rigor, impact, and value of research supported by the NIH.
