Biosketch

On March 12, 2021, NIH released NOT-OD-21-073: Upcoming Changes to the Biographical Sketch and Other Support Format Page for Due Dates on or after May 25, 2021 as well as NOT-OD-21-110: Implementation of Changes to the Biographical Sketch and Other Support Format Page. These two notices inform the research community of NIH's upcoming changes to both the Biosketch and Other Support. Use of the new forms is requested for applications, progress reports, JIT, post-submission/award that are due on or after May 25, 2021 and is required for applications, progress reports, JIT, post-submission/award due on or after January 25, 2022. If it is due prior to January 25, 2022, then you will continue to use the current formats, but if you are submitting for the February 5, 2022 deadline, but submitting prior to January 25, 2022, it is required you use the new forms. 

This page focuses on the current format and upcoming format changes for the Biosketch. NIH is also encouraging investigators to use SciENcv to help develop their Biosketch which the system will automatically format the Biosketch according to NIH requirements.

On March 30, 2021, HS SPPO held a quarterly Contacts Meeting where we discussed the upcoming changes. A PDF of the PPT is located here.  Since then, NIH released the above clarification notice that this new form is requested to be used for deadlines on or after May 25, 2021 and that it is firmly required for deadlines on or after January 25, 2022. 

NIH has created a wonderful and helpful pages for the Biosketch Form Page (both current and new):
