Reminder: NIH Will Continue to Accept Preliminary Data as Post-Submission Material Through January 2022 Council


In recognition of the fact that COVID-19 may still be adversely affecting the ability of applicants to generate preliminary data, NIH will continue to accept a one-page update with preliminary data as post-submission materials for applications submitted for the January 2022 Council (beginning with applications submitted for the May 25, 2021 due date for Fall 2021 review meetings), ONLY if the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) used for submission allowed preliminary data in the application (NOT-OD-21-095).

The deadline for submitting all post-submission materials, including preliminary data, will be 30 days before the study section meeting or as stipulated in the FOA. Because applications for emergency competitive revisions and urgent competitive revisions undergo expedited review, post-submission materials will not be accepted for those applications.

  1. Hi-
    Is NIH still accepting Supplementary Data post submission, but >30days before study section review?
    If it varies, what is the rule at NCI?
