CA Health & Safety Code § 104520 (2014) What's This?

It is the intent of the Legislature that the university utilize peer review panels modeled upon the National Institutes of Health peer review process to review all research grants. The membership of these panels shall vary depending on the subject matter of proposals and review requirements, and shall draw on the most qualified individuals from appropriate institutions within and outside the State of California and from within and without the University of California system. The work of the peer review panels shall be administered pursuant to policies and procedures established by the scientific advisory committee. In order to avoid conflicts of interest and to ensure access to qualified reviewers, the university may utilize reviewers not only from California but also from outside the state. When serving on peer review panels, individuals who have submitted grant applications for funding by this program shall be governed by conflict-of-interest provisions consistent with the National Institutes of Health Manual, Chapter 4510 (item h).
