Scientific Review Council

The Scientific Review Council (SRC) oversees the peer review of all cancer research applications submitted to CPRIT. Members of the SRC chair the cancer research peer review committees. The SRC must assess the evaluations completed by the cancer research peer review committees and create a final list of proposals recommended for CPRIT grant awards. This list is submitted to CPRIT's executive director. Texas law affords great weight to the review council’s funding recommendations, requiring the executive director’s final recommendations for funding awards to be “substantially based” on the list submitted by the review council.
