NIAMS periodically reviews the programs it funds to ensure that taxpayer dollars are used efficiently to promote the best possible science. NIAMS formed a Centers Evaluation Working Group (CEWG) to advise the Institute as to how its Centers program could be more responsive to current research needs and opportunities.
In this NIAMS Centers Evaluation Working Group Report, the CEWG attempts to convey to NIAMS the needs and opportunities identified by investigators and patient groups within the NIAMS mission areas.
