    Abstract

    Emergency Medicine (EM) investigators lag in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) when compared to other specialties. NIH funding determinations are made in part by a process of NIH study section peer review. Low participation by EM investigators in NIH peer review could be one explanation for low levels of NIH funding by EM investigators. The objective of this study was to establish a current-state metric of EM faculty researchers serving on standing NIH study sections from 2019-2020. Publicly available lists of NIH study section membership rosters within the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) and within individual NIH institutes were reviewed for standing members. Committee members listed as being members of a Department of Emergency medicine were identified as emergency care researchers. Special Emphasis panels and ad hoc members were excluded. Members degrees were categorized as PhD, MD (with or without non-PhD degree), MD/PhD, and other. Similar analysis was performed of AHRQ study sections. 6113 members on NIH study sections were identified. Degrees held by committee members included PhD's 74% (4547), MDs 14%(883), MD/PhDs 10% (584) and other (99). Twenty (0.3%) NIH study section members were identified as members of an emergency department. 20% (4) held PhDs, 75% (15) held MDs, and 5%(1) held MD-PhD degrees. 25% (5) of EM faculty were pediatric and 75% (15) were adult. Clustering of study sections within similar institutions was noted with 40% (2) of the pediatric faculty were at the same institution while 27% (4) of the adult faculty were at the same institution. AHRQ study section review identified 3% (4/127) as members of an EM department. Our data show that 20 EM faculty comprised 0.3% of NIH standing study section members and 4 EM faculty comprised 3% of AHRQ standing study section members from 2019 to 2020 and that these members were clustered at a few institutions.
