Notice Number: NOT-OD-14-050
Release Date: February 6, 2014
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
As part of the National Institutes of Health continuing commitment to New Investigators (http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/new_investigators/index.htm), the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) have allowed New Investigators the option of submitting R01 resubmission (A1) applications for consecutive review cycles: a "next round resubmission" application (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-11-057.html).
Due to the rescheduled meetings in the January 2014 council round, some CSR study section meetings in the May 2014 council round will be held on a delayed schedule in March 2014. New Investigators whose new R01 (A0) applications are being reviewed in these delayed CSR meetings may wish to take advantage of the next round resubmission option for their A1 applications. To allow New Investigators reviewed in March 2014 meetings sufficient time to prepare a next round resubmission application (A1) for the October 2014 council, a staggered resubmission deadline is being instituted. Specifically, these eligible New Investigator resubmitted A1 applications will be due 30 days after release of the summary statement for the original A0 application.
The table below outlines the changes, which apply only to eligible New Investigator R01 A1 applications when the original (A0) application is reviewed in CSR during March 2014.
New Investigator R01 A0 reviewed in February 2014
April 10, 2014
New Investigator R01 A0 reviewed in March 2014
30 days after release of A0 summary statement
For example, if your New Investigator R01 A0 application summary statement was released on March 20, 2014, you will have until April 19, 2014 to resubmit your A1 application.
Note that next round resubmission applies only to R01 applications submitted using funding opportunity announcements with standard due dates.
All additional provisions of NOT-OD-11-057 remain in place.
