Description CAAT grants, although relatively small, often provide critical seed money for researchers hoping to develop new alternative methods. We have a stringent, peer-reviewed process for selecting the recipients of these grants. This process consists of sending each application to at least four experts in the field from academic, industrial, and government institutions. These reviewers evaluate the applications with regard to scientific merit, budget appropriateness, suitability to CAAT's mission, and expertise of the investigators. They also assign a priority score based on the scoring system used by the NIH.
