Peer Review Process
The NBCF peer review process is integral to supporting the best breast cancer research in Australia. The effectiveness and sustainability of the peer review processes depends on scientific and consumer reviewers with wide-ranging expertise in cancer research, who have donated their time to ensuring the efficacy of this process. Please find the consumer engagement resource document here.
NBCF has privileged access to some of the best scientific minds on a volunteer basis. NBCF monitors the research landscape to ensure that the grant categories address current and relevant needs and priorities in breast cancer research.
To ensure integrity, accountability and transparency when awarding funds, NBCF coordinates a rigorous peer review process. An open and competitive call is issued for each of our grants. Applications are reviewed by external Peer Review Committees and our Research Advisory Committee (RAC). The recommendations made by the RAC are then submitted to the NBCF Board for approval.
