How many projects per year are expected to go through the RF process?

The number of projects reviewed by a specific RF team depends on the membership, focus, and demand of requests for review by that RF group.  The maximum capacity for project review by any RF is 24 research projects annually.  The RF-Child Health covered 11 research projects in 2014.  The ICTS hopes to expand to other translational research areas as additional resources become available—increasing the depth and breadth of research areas accommodated through the scheme.
