NIH announces new biosketch format

NIH has announced a new biosketch format for application due dates on/after January 25, 2015 (NOT-OD-15-024). The SF424 (R&R) forms page now includes both the old and new biosketch. In addition to the standard biosketch format, NIH also has a Fellowship-specific format that must be used for individual predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships, dissertation research grants (R36), and Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Admin Supplement).  After January 25, 2015 the old formats and samples will be removed. Until then, choose the format appropriate for your due date. Although we will be flexible in accepting either format before January 25, the new format is required on/after January 25 .  For more information visit the Biosketch FAQ page.
