Peer Review

Applications to PCFA are assessed via a two-tiered process as follows:

  • Phase 1 - A Peer Review Panel or individual External Expert Assessors, review the applications for excellence using the criteria for the relevant grant category.
  • Phase 2 - Expert panel / External Expert Assessor recommendations are ratified by PCFA's Research Advisory Committee (RAC).

RAC makes recommendations to PCFA’s National Board for final approval.

 

Panels

International and Australian Peer Review Panels are convened specifically for each funding opportunity. Panel members are selected based on the breadth of their knowledge and expertise in basic and translational prostate cancer research.

External Expert Assessors

New Concept Grant applications submitted to PCFA cover a diverse cross-section of every aspect of prostate cancer research. Hence every effort is made to ensure that each application is reviewed by at least two assessors with the relevant expertise. Expert Assessors, both Australian and International, are assigned to each application based on their specific knowledge and experience in the area of the proposed research.
