Take Advantage of All Pivot Has to Offer
For years, Community of Science (COS) has been recognized around the world for its funding from a wide variety of sources as well as its access to the world’s research community.
CWRU has subscribed to COS's new product, Pivot, which provides you the edge by bringing together the right research opportunities, funding, and people—quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration—for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students.
Learn more about how to use all the features Pivot has to offer.
- provide access to the most comprehensive global source of funding opportunities;
- identify research expertise from within or outside of CWRU;

NIH Postpones New Biosketch Format Requirement until May 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, and will be required beginning May 25, 2015. Originally, the requirement was to go into effect beginning January 25, 2015, but in response to input from the research community, the mandatory change in format was postponed.
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.
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
