Do you have thoughts on how common data elements (CDEs) may be used in NIH-supported clinical research? If so, please share them in response to a recently released Request for Information.
We are back again to share our annual update on NIH application, award, and success rate data. Here we present our most recent information for fiscal year (FY) 2023 enacted appropriations.
In a world of rapidly changing digital expectations, new formats to access and store information, and a dynamic biomedical landscape, users want to connect to data across an abundant, widely available, and growing ecosystem of biomedical research with one click. That is the future we are working to create by leveling up our dataset discovery technology to better understand user expectations and enhance the user experience.
Last week, Dr. Monica Bertagnolli accepted recommendations from the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director on considering approaches that use novel alternative methods in biomedical and behavioral research. This is an exciting step in our ongoing efforts to support research that complements traditional models when scientifically feasible.
Increased Use of the Childcare Cost Support Policy by National Research Service Award (NRSA) Fellows in FY 2023
NIH has seen a gradual increase in the number of National Research Service Award (NRSA) fellows requesting childcare cost support since the policy was implemented in 2021.
Last year, NIH was one of several federal agencies to join the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in their celebration of 2023 as the Year of Open Science. Let’s break down this definition of open science.
Learning More About NIH Research Directions and How You Can Provide Input: Highlighting Autoimmune Disease Research
We often seek feedback on various grant policies and initiatives broadly affecting the extramural research community. There are also opportunities to weigh in on future directions for the many different disease-specific research areas NIH supports. Here, we wanted to briefly share some resources about these comment opportunities and how to be informed.
This year, I once again virtually sat down with Dr. David Kosub, from our communications group, to take a look back and to share some thoughts on what is to come for 2024.
Since March, we have engaged with the Federal Demonstration Partnership to pilot test two DMS plan templates. These templates were developed in close collaboration with staff and leadership from offices across NIH, and we seek your input on them.
In this case study, we will discuss how plagiarism in the grant application process is handled at NIH and remind the research community about the importance of maintaining confidentiality of the peer review process.
