The NIH announces new review criteria for research project applications involving clinical trials (September 21-2017)
Additional review questions will be effective for all clinical trial applications for research project grants and cooperative agreements that are submitted for funding consideration for due dates on or after January 25, 2018. For the evaluation of those applications, new questions will be added to the existing review questions, which will not change for research project applications that do not involve clinical trials. Some Program Announcements and Requests for Applications may include FOA-specific questions in addition to those below. See NOT-OD-17-118.
Clinical Trial Requirements for Grants and Contracts (August 17, 2017)
NIH is launching a series of initiatives that are rolling out in 2017-2018 to enhance the accountability and transparency of clinical research. Learn more about these changes and how they will affect peer review. See the Clinical Trials webpage.
Updated Appendix Policy Eliminates Clinical Trial-Related Materials for Applications Submitted to Due Dates on or After Jan. 25, 2018 (August 17, 2017)
Since clinical trial-related materials will be required in the new PHS Human Subjects and Clinical Trials Information Form, they will no longer be allowed in the Appendix for due dates on or after January 25, 2018, unless specifically required in the funding opportunity announcement. See NOT-OD-17-098 .
