For your convenience, here is a roundup of recently announced changes impacting grant application submission for due dates on or after January 25, 2019.
NIH Policy and Guidelines on the Inclusion of Individuals Across the Lifespan as Participants in Research Involving Human Subjects (NOT-OD-18-116)
Individuals of all ages are expected to be included in all NIH-defined clinical research unless there are scientific or ethical reasons not to include them. Applications for research involving human subjects must address the age-appropriate inclusion or exclusion of individuals in the Inclusion of Women, Minorities, and Children section of the proposed research project.
We’ve updated application instructions and review criteria addressing rigor of prior research (formerly scientific premise); inclusion reporting and requirements; and protections for human subjects.
Recently published opportunities have the updated review criteria in the body of the announcement. Opportunities posted prior to the change have a link to the notice containing updated criteria at the top of the Application Review Information section.
