How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*This committee is composed entirely of recognized biomedical and/or behavioral research authorities who represent the forefront of research and technical knowledge in the mapping of loci responsible for the genetic contribution to common disorders in humans, including, but not limited to, cardiovascular and pulmonary disease, cancer, psychiatric disorders, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. The Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) is a consortium of 10 Institutes. The National Human Genome Research Institute is the lead agency for the consortium which manages CIDR through a Board of Governors representing each of the 14 Institutes. CIDR advises the Director, NIH, and the Board of Governors on the scientific and technical merit of applications seeking to use the genotyping and genetic analysis capabilities of CIDR. During this reporting period the committee approved 11 applications requesting access to the CIDR facility.
How is membership balanced?*The members of this committee are recognized authorities knowledgeable in the various disciplines and fields of human genetics, quantitative genetics, linkage and segregation analysis, and genotyping technology.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Center for Inherited Disease Research Access Committee held six meetings during this reporting period.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This committee is composed entirely of recognized biomedical and/or behavioral research authorities who represent the forefront of research and technical knowledge and who provide review of highly scientific and technical research applications requesting access to the CIDR facility. These evaluations and recommendations cannot be obtained from other sources because the specialized, complex nature of the applications requires a unique balance and breadth of expertise not available on the NIH staff or from established sources.
Why close or partially close meetings?The meetings of the Center for Inherited Disease Research Access Committee were closed to the public for the review of applications. Sections 552b(c)(4) and 552b(c)(6) of the Government in the Sunshine Act permit the closing of meetings where discussion could reveal confidential trade secrets or commercial property such as patentable material and personal information, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
Recommendation RemarksCommittee Function: Other - Review of requests for access to the Center for Inherited Disease Research.

Member Schaid received a new appointment as Committee Chair.

Reports: This committee did not produce any public reports during the fiscal year.

The DFO and Decision Maker are the same person, Barbara Thomas, Scientific Review Officer, NHGRI, based on the assignment of duties in this Institute.

Cost Savings CommentNIH supported basic and clinical research accomplishments often take many years to unfold into new diagnostic tests and new ways to treat and prevent diseases.Grants Review CommentSuccessful applicants are provided with access to the genotyping and genetic analysis capabilities of CIDR rather than funds. The access to CIDR is paid by the Institute or Center that funded the original grant application.

Agency Feedback CommentThe agency provides oral and written reports.Narrative Description*The goal of NIH research is to acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and disability, from the rarest genetic disorder to the common cold. The NIH mission is to uncover new knowledge that will lead to better health for everyone. NIH works toward that mission by supporting the research of non-Federal scientists in universities, medical schools, hospitals, and research institutions throughout the country and abroad. Section 492 of the PHS Act states that The Secretary ...shall by regulation require appropriate technical and scientific peer review of -(A) applications...; and (B) biomedical and behavioral research and development contracts...
