Peer review – how  applications are judged:

All our applications are assessed by peer review. Firstly by independent external referees with expertise in the field of A-T and/or with expertise in the area of research proposed in the application, and then by Action for A-T’s Research Advisory Committee. Our Research Advisory Committee recommends the grants most likely to deliver and we pride ourselves that our research is of a high standard as judged by a robust peer review process.

Action for A-T is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and we have been awarded a best practice certificate for our peer review process. The AMRC is a membership organisation of the leading medical and health research charities in the UK.
