NIH: Reminder to Address Inclusion of Individuals Across the Lifespan in Grant Applications

Effective for due dates January 25, 2019 or later, keep in mind the following changes to NIH applications and progress reports.

Applications must address the age-appropriate inclusion or exclusion of individuals in the proposed research project by including:

- A description of plans for including individuals across the lifespan, including a rationale for selecting the specific age range
- An acceptable justification for the exclusion, if individuals will be excluded from the research based on age

For progress reports for awards from applications due Jan. 25th and later, to improve access to age-related information and better understand study outcomes across age groups:

- Submit de-identified participant-level data on sex/gender, race, ethnicity, and age at enrollment in progress reports.

Read the full reminder on NIH Office of Extramural Research website.
