NIH: Office of Disease Prevention


The Prevention Research Expertise Survey (PRES) collects data on scientists’ methodological and content expertise to support an electronic directory. This electronic directory will help National Institutes of Health (NIH) Scientific Review Officers (SROs) identify experts in prevention science methods to include on their review panels.

Why should you participate?

Taking the PRES will help improve the quality of prevention research at the NIH by identifying experts in prevention science methods to include on NIH scientific review panels. Participation in the PRES is strictly voluntary. If you chose to share your information, you may be asked to review NIH grant applications, either on an ad hoc basis or as part of a study section.

How long will it take to complete the survey?

The survey is estimated to take 20 minutes to complete.

What information will you need to include?

You will need to provide your name, contact information, and skill levels in a variety of prevention science methods and content areas. You will also have the opportunity to upload your curriculum vitae.

How will your information be used?

The information that you provide will be used to populate the electronic directory. The directory is a web interface that NIH SROs can use to access the data gathered by the survey. Search features will allow SROs to easily identify scientists with the best match of skills in relevant methodological and content areas.
