NIH Requires New Biosketch Format for Due Dates on or After January 25, 2015
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently announced that a new biosketch format will be required for all applications submitted for FY2016 funding, which begins with due dates of January 25, 2015.
The NIH has been piloting a planned modification of the biosketch since June 2012. The new format increases the page limit from 4 to 5 pages and increases the number of peer-reviewed publications from 15 to 20.
The new format allows investigators to include a link to a complete listing of their publications in SciENcv or My Bibliography. Within the next few weeks, the NIH will update SciENcv to accommodate the new biosketch format.
Visit the NIH website under the heading “Additional Format Pages” to obtain templates for the new biosketch format: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/424/index.htm.
Local Assistance Available with New Biosketch Formatting
Contact Kathy Blazer, Interim Director, Cleveland Health Sciences Library, (216-368-1361 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in having Kathy conduct a departmental information session, or to answer individual questions.

NEW Limited Submission: American Diabetes Association Pathway to Stop Diabetes
Key Deadlines: March 2, 2015, 5:00pm (CWRU Internal Submission Deadline), July 1, 2015, 8:00pm EST.
To accelerate the research needed to discover solutions and ultimately cure this deadly epidemic, the American Diabetes Association has launched a bold initiative, Pathway to Stop Diabetes, to inspire a new generation of diabetes researchers. Pathway will provide crucial support to individuals focusing on innovative ideas and transformational approaches that will lead to ground-breaking discoveries in diabetes prevention, treatment and cures.
Pathway will support creative scientists early in their diabetes research careers, or investigators who are established in other disciplines but would like to expand their focus to diabetes research. Through awards of $1.625 million over the course of up to seven years, the program will provide researchers the freedom, autonomy, time and focus needed to explore new ideas.
