The site below outlines interesting analyses that examine the current NIH scoring systems as well as insights into funding practices and patterns.
Dr. Sally Rockey, NIH Deputy Director for Extramural Research, has posted on her blog a discussion of the "Correlation Between Overall Impact Scores and Criterion Scores." Recent changes in peer review make this discussion of particular interest to grant applicants.
