When dutifully scanning the weekly Table of Contents email for the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts every Friday afternoon, have you found yourself wondering where all the Notices of Special Interest (NOSI) came from? And, what is a NOSI anyways?
Dr. Jodi Black, Deputy Director of NIH’s Office of Extramural Research, joins us in this next installment of the NIH’s All About Grants podcast series to break down NOSIs (MP3 / Transcript). We discuss what they are and why NIH is using them, what you should know about them when putting together an application, who you should go to for questions, and why it is so important to include that NOSI number in Box 4B of your application.
Need a refresher on the alphabet soup of funding opportunity types touched on in the discussion? Check out our Understand Funding Opportunities page or listen to this classic 2011 All About Grants podcast to learn the difference between PAs, PARs, PASs, RFAs and parent announcements.
