Each year NHMRC relies heavily on the research community to undertake peer review of grant applications. The review panel spokespersons were asked last year to nominate an external assessor report that was of particularly high quality and of significant benefit to the deliberations of the panel. Four of our staff appeared on the list of those demonstrating such outstanding contribution in 2014. These are David Callen, Francis Carbone, Robert Fitridge and Julia Pitcher. Congratulations to all four.
