The SRS has recently received feedback in multiple venues and from multiple NIH Scientific Review Officers (SRO) that there is a serious shortage of sleep and circadian scientists who are willing to review grants. The SROs suggested that this lack of sleep and circadian experts on review panels is hurting the chances of our grants receiving fundable scores. To help address this problem of a shortage of reviewers, the SRS wants to put a list of names together of investigators who are willing to say “yes” if asked to review grants.
We are asking all US-based investigators in the SRS community to please consider adding your name to the list of the willing. If you are willing to add your name to the list, please email us and provide your name and a few bullet points related to your area(s) of expertise. Thank you very much for considering serving the field as a reviewer, and as always, thank you for your membership.
