NIH Piloting New Biosketch Format

The NIH has initiated a second round of pilots to assess a planned modification of the NIH Biographical Sketch (Biosketch).  The new Biosketch format being piloted will extend the page limit from four to five pages and it will allow researchers to describe up to five of their most significant contributions to science along with the historical background that framed their research.  NIH currently plans to roll out the modified biosketch for all grant applications received for FY16 funding and beyond, (which generally refers to applications submitted in early 2015). 

The MCW GCO will provide more information to PIs and departments after NIH issues final guidance on the revised Biosketch; currently, the new template and instructions could change based on feedback from the pilot program.

For more information on the Biosketch Pilot program see the NIH Notice Update on the New NH Biosketch Format and related articles Changes to the Biosketch.
