Revised Post-Submission Material Policy


With the expiration of the Public Health Emergency on May 11 comes the end of the special exception that allowed applicants to submit a one-page update of preliminary data as post-submission materials. However, going forward, NIH is revising our standard post-submission material policy to allow a one-page update with preliminary data to be submitted as post-submission material for Type 1 R01, R21, or R03 applications, including resubmissions, as long as the funding opportunity used for submission allows preliminary data in the application. For applications submitted for the May 25, 2023 receipt date and beyond, the special exception is ended and applicants should follow the new policy. 

See NOT-OD23-106 for details.
