If your new investigator (NI) or early stage investigator(ESI) status is incorrect or changes after the submission of an application either because you updated your eRA Commons profile information or you were granted an extension of your ESI status (NOT-OD-09-034), the application will not reflect the changed ESI status when you view the grant folder in eRA Commons. To correct the designated NI or ESI status for the application, you should:
- Log in to your eRA Commons profile
- Verify the accuracy of your degree date, medical residency dates and NI and ESI status
- Contact the NIH Commons help desk to request a correction to your NI/ESI designation (have your application number handy to speed the process)
The NIH Commons help desk will correct the NI/ESI status designation for the application.
