The External Reviewer Exchange Consortium (CEREC) leverages the resources and knowledge base of nine Clinical and Translational Science (CTSA) hubs across the nation to enable the efficient exchange of reviewer expertise to support internal pilot funding programs.

Through collaboration, CEREC develops strategies that promote methodological excellence, scientific transparency and innovation while minimizing conflict of interest in the review process of applications for pilot funding opportunities.

The Consortium is made up of institutes supported by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Clinical and Translational Science Awards competitively awarded to the medical schools/institutions of higher learning indicated below.
