2.5.2 Submitting Revised Project Summary/Abstracts, Specific Aims, and/or Public Health Relevance Statement

When requested by NIH as part of the pre-award process, PD/PIs and the AOR should discuss potential changes in scope with NIH PO and revise the Project Summary/Abstract, Specific Aims, and/or Public Health Relevance sections of their application as appropriate. Once all issues are resolved, applicants should e-mail a document with final versions of the revised sections to the IC The NIH organizational component responsible for a particular grant program or set of activities. The terms "NIH IC," or "awarding IC" are used throughout this document to designate a point of contact for advice and interpretation of grant requirements and to establish the focal point for requesting necessary prior approvals or changes in the terms and conditions of award.-designated e-mail address (normally a Program Official, Grants Management Official, or centralized e-mail box) as a single Microsoft Word or PDF file. Be reminded that all revised application information submitted to the NIH must be approved by an AOR. Applicants should use this template. The template includes specific headings that must be used for each section. All three headings must be included in the document that is submitted even if a particular section had no changes from the previous submission. If there are no changes for a section include the header but leave the text area blank to ensure appropriate processing of this information by NIH's electronic systems.
