American Institute of Biological Sciences: 1995 Peer Review Panel Recruitment

€ AIBS PEER REVIEWS

 The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) performs scientific
peer review of proposals submitted to various government agencies.  AIBS
peer review activity in 1994 involved the receipt and processing of almost
5,000 proposals.  These proposals were reviewed by over 100 panels
composed of more than 1,000 scientific and technical reviewers.  Below is
a listing of the types of topics for which we have convened panels in 1994
as well what we expect to handle in 1995. 

€ ABOUT AIBS

AIBS was established in 1947 by the National Academy of Sciences under
federal charter and became an independent, member-governed nonprofit
(501)(c)(3) organization in 1955.   AIBS currently has 5,000 individual
members and has 45 affiliated societies whose combined membership totals
over 80,000.  AIBS is chartered to:  "further the advancement of the
biological sciences and their application to human welfare, and to foster
and encourage research and education in the biological, medical,
environmental, and agriculture sciences."  For more information about
AIBS, you can check out our gopher (currently under construction) at
gopher.aibs.org or point your browser at: gopher://gopher.aibs.org

€ WE NEED YOUR HELP!  

If you were a panelist in 1994 (or previous years) and are willing to
serve again; would like to serve for the first time; or know someone who
is interested in serving on a similar panel, we'd like to know.  Also, if
you know of other people who might be able to serve on any of the panels
listed below, we'd certainly like to know about them too.
