Slides Available, today's NIH Biosketch and Other Support Town Hall

The slides from today’s town hall on the revised NIH biographical sketches and other support format pages are available here (included in the NIH Researcher Disclosure Requirements webpage). For those of you who attended previous town halls, minor revisions were made to the slides to reflect the latest information from NIH, issued after last week’s May 5 town hall. This latest slide deck should be used regardless of which session you may have attended in the past.

Key takeaways:

  • You may continue to use the current biosketch and other support format pages, however, the new formats will be required for applications, JIT requests, and RPPRs due on or after 1/25/2022.
  • Regardless of which format you use, applicants and recipients remain responsible for disclosing all research endeavors.
  • Other Support: As a reminder (see NIH announcement NOT-OD-19-114, July 10, 2019), regardless of the format used, you must ensure to include: completed projects (past three years); consulting that involves the conduct of research; and in-kind contributions.

Another town hall focusing on the NIH Other Support format pages is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm (can register using a Columbia-affiliated email address). We will continue to schedule future town halls and develop tools to assist you. For immediate questions, please contact your SPA Project Officer.

Editor's note:

Correction: announcement dated 5/10/2021 stated, "As a reminder (see NIH announcement NOT-OD-19-114, July 20, 2019)..." It has since been corrected to state July 10, 2019 instead of July 20, 2019, the release of NIH's announcement NOT-OD-19-114.
