New NIH Biosketch Format Required Beginning with May 25 Submissions

NIH and AHRQ will require a new biosketch format in applications for research grants submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015. The new format extends the page limit from four to five pages, and allows researchers to describe up to five of their most significant contributions to science, along with the historical background that framed their research. Investigators can outline the central findings of prior work and the influence of those findings on the investigator’s field. Details on this new format can be found on the SF 424 Forms and Applications Page.
