"The review system is great. In my opinion the single most critical factor is the selection of good reviewers and chairs. In my panel the chair was outstanding and the reviewers were very good."
"The Program Staff have told me this was the best panel they had ever seen. I agree. I want to thank all of you for your hard work and intelligent, comprehensive discussions. A genuine pleasure to work with you."
"Let me say that I really miss the AIBS reviews - you guys do such a great job and it is something that comes into sharp focus when I am reviewing grants for other agencies."
"I think your online review system is pretty optimal. Others should learn from your system for online scoring."
