What is a summary statement and what does it mean?

NHLBI will provide a Summary Statement for each application, whether discussed or not at the peer review meeting.

Summary Statements include:

  • Resume and summary of the main points discussed during the review meeting and major strengths and weaknesses
  • Reviewer critiques containing more information about the strengths and weaknesses detected by peer reviewers
  • Codes and budget information
  • Meeting Roster
  • Contact information for the Program Official (PO) to whom the grant is assigned

Within approximately 30 days, your summary statement will be available via your NIH Commons account. You can find general information about pay lines in NHLBI’s General Funding Guidelines.

If human subjects concerns arise during peer review, your summary statement will include code 44, which bars funding until you address all concerns. This may occur as a result of an absent or inadequate monitoring plan or concerns about risks versus benefits for subjects. Your Program Official(PO) will contact you to discuss how to resolve the issues raised in the summary statement. These concerns will need to be resolved before NHLBAC review. The NOA cannot be issued until this is done.
