Important Changes to NIH biosketches

Federal agencies continue to evolve the disclosure requirements designed to mitigate improper influence in federally funded research, with particular attention to disclosures regarding foreign involvement. On 12 march 2021, NIH issued a notice, which set forth new requirements in the form of updated, reorganized forms and instructions for the Biosketch and Other Support documents. The changes are substantial in order to promote transparency and full disclosure of all resource – both domestic and foreign – supporting an individual’s research endeavors. Read the complete changes here.
