NIH Clinical Center Board of Scientific Counselors

Review Process - Response to Review

The Clinical Center then prepares a written point-by-point response to each recommendation enumerated in the final report, noting specifically how the team's recommendations will be implemented. The report and response are then presented to the Deputy Director for Intramural Research, NIH, and to a subcommittee of the NIH Board of Scientific Directors.

At the end of each four-year cycle of reviews, the full Board meets to review all the recommendations made in the prior cycle and also evaluates the Clinical Center's responses to these recommendations. Annually, the Chair of the Board of Scientific Counselors, presents a summary of the review process and the activities of the Board of Scientific Counselors' to the Clinical Center's Advisory Board for Clinical Research.
