How does PCORI select Reviewers for each cycle?

PCORI assigns applications to Reviewers based on availability, experience, and corresponding fit with the applications in the panel. Individuals who have been invited to serve as a PCORI Reviewer will be asked to indicate their availability to serve before a new cycle begins. In this correspondence, a Reviewer will indicate whether he or she is able to complete all assignments and attend the in-person Merit Review meeting. After participant availability is determined, PCORI assesses its need for specific Reviewer types based on the quantity and topic areas of applications received for that cycle. A subset of available Reviewers are then invited to self-rate their expertise and indicate any conflicts of interest (COIs) on the applications in each panel for a particular PFA.
