*Subject:* NEW! NIH Prevention Research Expertise Survey – Your
Participation is Requested

Dear Dr. Mabry,

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Disease Prevention (ODP)
is launching an initiative to enhance the scientific rigor of NIH-funded
research projects and is seeking your help. The ODP is developing a
database of experts in research methods relevant to prevention research
that can help Scientific Review Officers (SROs) identify reviewers for NIH
grant applications. By completing the *Prevention Research Expertise Survey
 you will be providing the content for an “electronic directory” that will
aid SROs in identifying appropriate experts to serve on their review
committees and in matching the most qualified reviewers to specific grant

Please take a few minutes to share this survey with your society’s listserv
and colleagues who have expertise in research methods relevant to
prevention research.  The survey asks the respondent to provide information
about his or her scientific and grant review expertise. Please know that
the NIH will not share the information with any organizations or
individuals outside of the federal government. The information will be used
primarily by NIH for the purpose of identifying reviewers, but may also be
used to identify appropriate experts for other NIH activities such as
serving on panels, committees, workgroups, writing groups, or for similar
purposes by other federal agencies.

The ODP is the lead Office at the NIH responsible for assessing,
facilitating, and stimulating research in disease prevention and health
promotion and for disseminating the results of this research to improve
public health. For more information visit the ODP website

Thank you for taking the time to share this survey!
