Geiger Recognized by CIHR for Outstanding Contributions to Peer Review
Jonathan Geiger, Chester Fritz Distinguished Professor with the Biomedical Sciences Department at UND's School of Medicine & Health Sciences, has been recognized for his review contributions for the Canadian Instituties of Health Research (CIHR).
The CIHR's Review Quality Assurance process aims to highlight outstanding contributions to peer review by seeking input from committee chairs, scientific officers, and CIHR staff. According to the CIHR, the "process captures contributions that exemplify the very best of peer reviewers, such as providing reviews that exceeded expectations, completing additional tasks on short notice, and participating contructively in discussions about applications that were not assigned to them."
From a pool of over 1000 reviewers who participated, Dr. Geiger joined the elite strata of his peers who earned the top "outstanding" ranking in his contribution to peer review during the Fall 2020 Project Grant competition.
