Peer review is defined as the process of subjecting an investigator's research or writing to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field. This process ensures that a given field of study continues to move forward in an impactful and accurate way. It is the quality-control system that defines and validates all research, and it is at the heart of all progress made in biomedical research. While not perfect by any means, the peer review process increases the probability that a given field of study will establish scientific truths via replication and validation by other scientists. The process is highly revered by scientists and it is considered to be an honor and privilege to be invited to serve as a reviewer on a study section or for a journal. Conversely, work done in the absence of adequate peer review is viewed with skepticism.
The Foundation’s Scientific Program is committed to upholding the sanctity of peer review and recruits experts in the disciplines to which proposals and requests for proposals are directed. Additionally, all research proposals are reviewed by CHF's Scientific Review Committee.
We are indebted to these scientists and clinicians for their service to this Foundation and for their dedication to canine and human health.
Help Future Generations of Dogs
Participate in canine health research by providing samples or by enrolling in a clinical trial. Samples are needed from healthy dogs and dogs affected by specific diseases.
