NEW! NEW NIH APPROACH TO GRANT FUNDING

On May 2, 2017, Dr. Lawrence Tabak, Principal Deputy Director of the NIH, led a conference call

regarding a coming change in the NIH’s grants policies.  The NIH has been considering ways to

address several problematic trends: 1) increasing funding challenges for junior- and mid-career

investigators, including a recent marked decline in the share of awards to mid-career scientists;

2) data that suggest faculty with multiple R01 grants are relatively less productive with each new

grant beyond the first; and 3) a limited number of investigators who receive a disproportionate

amount of the NIH’s funding (i.e. 10% of investigators receive 40% of the total funding).

NIH is proposing to address these concerns by implementing a funding cap to limit investigators

to the equivalent of three R01 awards based on a new indicator, the “Grant Support Index”, or

GSI. While the exact methodology is still under development, at its core, the GSI would count

each R01 as 7 points, and other grants would be scored as less or more depending on the

amount of perceived investigator bandwidth they would require.  For example, an exploratory

R03 might count as 3 points.  The NIH would maintain a running count of grants issued to each

PI and for any PI whose next grant would take them over 21 points, the investigator would be

required to provide a plan for bringing their score back to 21 or less.  The details of this process,

and of the relative GSI score for each grant type, are still being worked out.  The system will not

take “effort” into the calculation, just the PI status.  Multi-PI grants would have a reduced GSI.

NEW! NIH Releases e-Protocol Writing Tool and Final NIH-FDA Clinical Trial

Template for Phase 2 and 3 IND/IDE Studies

Today, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released two important related items. The first is

the Final NIH-FDA Clinical Trial Template for Phase 2 and 3 IND/IDE Studies.  The template

aims to assist NIH-funded investigators in preparing clinical trial documents efficiently so that

both IRBs and the FDA can perform speedy reviews. NIH has also released a web-based

platform where investigators can utilize the protocol template in an interactive fashion.  The

Electronic Protocol Writing Tool allows for a collaborative approach to writing and reviewing

protocols.  Investigators will be able to use the tool to form a “protocol writing team” and

assign different individuals with writing and reviewing roles.  All of the above resources can

be found on the OSP website.

To learn more about the importance of these new resources, please read the latest Under the

Poliscope  blog by NIH Associate Director for Science Policy, Dr. Carrie D. Wolinetz.  For an

additional perspective please also see the statement released today by NIH Director Dr.

Francis Collins.

If you have any questions or require further information about these resources, please contact

the NIH Office of Science Policy at SciencePolicy@od.nih.gov

 

 

Upcoming Grant Deadlines:  The Office of Research Administration (ORA) would like to ask

for your patience for the next 6-8 weeks.  The grants team is short three (3) people and there are

several major grant deadlines coming up.  Our responses to emails and phone calls may be

delayed during this time period, but we will get back with you as soon as we can.  We thank you

for your patience.
