Introducing the Stephen I. Katz Early Stage Investigator Research Grant Program

November 9, 2020

Stephen I. Katz, M.D., Ph.D., led the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases from 1995 until his passing in 2018. Dr. Katz was a talented physician scientist, NIH leader, and civil servant throughout his career who was profoundly dedicated to mentoring and training the next cadre of scientists. During his memorial service at NIH, you can see this dedication on full display. I, along with countless NIH colleagues, were blessed with Dr. Katz’s mentoring and sage advice. That is why, in his honor, we are pleased to announce the publication of Funding Opportunity Announcements for the Stephen I. Katz Early Stage Investigator Research Project Grant program .

Friendlier Approach for Cross-Referencing NOSIs in FOAs Used for Submission

October 5, 2020

Going forward, you will no longer see individual Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs) cross-referenced in the Related Notices section of the funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) they use for application submission. Instead, FOAs identified for use with NOSIs will include a single link at the top of the Related Notices section that takes you to two NOSI tables – one for active and another for expired NOSIs associated with the FOA. The table format enables you to see, at a glance, the NOSIs that are still active along with the expiration date, activity code(s), and participating organizations.
