NIH Biographical Sketch Format

New NIH Biosketch Format

NIH will require applicants and recipients to use the updated other support and biosketch format for applications, Just-In-Time (JIT) reports, and Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs) as of January 25, 2022. If applicants and recipients choose not to use the updated format pages at this time, they must still capture all the necessary information.

Beginning with due dates on or after January 25, 2022, failure to follow the appropriate formats may cause NIH to withdrawal applications or delay consideration for funding.
