Add event to calendar vCal

NIH recently announced a change in the format for the Biosketch for NIH and AHRQ applications. This applies to all applications submitted on or after May 25, 2015.

Highlights of the changes:

  • 5 page limit (up from the previous 4 page limit)
  • The inclusion of up to 4 references in the Personal Statement, that "specifically highlight your experience and qualifications for this project"
  • An additional section entitled “Contributions to Science”, where you briefly describe up to 5 of your contributions to science, listing up to 4 references supporting each item. Note this section pertains to “science” in general, rather than to the specific project addressed in the grant application. The Personal Statement appears to be the only section that focuses specifically on the grant application subject matter.

In place of the previous 15 reference bibliography, the applicant supplies a link to an on-line bibliography, such as MyBibliography or SciENcv.

Join us to learn more about the new changes and a Q & A session at TraCS.
