The NIH Loan Repayment Program (LRP) conversation is back! And, building on Part 1, this time, we are getting into the nitty gritty of the application itself. Dr. Ericka Boone, Director of the Division of Loan Repayment is joined by Dr. Roya Kalantari, a program officer focused on LRPs at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to discuss what you should do when preparing to apply, the various sections of the application, some tips to consider and mistakes to avoid, as well as thoughts on when seeking a renewal.
If you need to submit a Federal Financial Report (FFR) through the HHS Payment Management System (PMS), then you’ll want to be aware of two recent notices in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts.
We have embarked on a series of initiatives at NIH in recent years to enhance the quality, efficiency, accountability, and transparency of our supported clinical research. While we are all making great progress, our concerns about clinical trials that are overly complex, have small sample sizes, or rely on surrogate end points that lack clinical relevance remain. One resource to help address these concerns is the NIH Research Methods Resources website that NIH’s Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) launched in 2017. Since the site was recently revamped, we wanted to spotlight the new available tools and resources that can help you better plan the design, conduct, and analysis of rigorous NIH-defined clinical trials.
The FDA recently released two new tools that were developed for investigators and clinicians: 1) Research IND Pilot Portal and 2) Expanded Access eRequest.
In a previous post, we looked at the gender distribution of designated principal investigators (PI’s) of R01 and RPG applications submitted before and after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

An NIH peer reviewer was approached by a well-known professional grant writing service to assist a client in preparing an NIH grant application. The service advertised phenomenal success in securing NIH funding for its clients. What would you do? …

Now that fiscal year (FY) 2020 grants data are available in the NIH Data Book, let’s see how many unique scientists sought support on NIH research project grants. The “cumulative investigator rate,” a person-based metric that looks at the likelihood that unique investigators are funded over a five-year window, has moved in a positive direction in recent years, and we were pleased to see the trend mostly continue into FY 2020.
