Scientific Review Committee

The Scientific Review Committee will review all PSG research proposals including retrospective data mining projects and prospective studies, whether observational or interventional. A primary and secondary reviewer will be assigned and the Committee will review and score each proposal. The Committee will also facilitate contacts with the Mentoring Committee as appropriate. Requests for use of PSG repositories (DNA, CSF, blood, urine, video) will also be reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee. The Scientific Review Committee will consist of a chair and approximately ten to fifteen members to serve terms of three years and will rotate off one third of its members every year.
