Neuromedicine 2015 progress report


 

NIH Grant Changes – NIH has finalized instructions regarding grant elements that will improve the rigor and reproducibility of federally-funded research (for full details see NIH notice NOT-OD-16-011 and associated notices NOT-OD-15-103 and NOT-OD-15-102).  These policies take effect for most NIH research proposals submitted for due dates on or after 25 January 2016.  The notice of award requires language within the Approach section of the proposal and will be a reviewable/scorable element by study section.

The Office of Research strongly recommends that proposals be submitted to the Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) at least 2 business days prior to the sponsor’s published deadline.  This will provide DSP with sufficient time to secure all necessary internal approvals, and to identify any issues within the proposal materials that are inconsistent with the sponsor’s submission requirements that may result in the proposal being rejected by the sponsor without review.   For proposals submitted to DSP less than 2 days prior to the sponsor’s published deadline, this office will do everything it can to submit the application ahead of the deadline. However, in these cases DSP may not have sufficient time for complete technical proposal review relative to submission requirements, thus increasing the chance of rejection due to technical deficiency.
