Research Resources and Funding Opportunities
From the NIH
- National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- NIH Commons - The Electronic Research Administration (ERA) Commons is a virtual meeting place where NIH extramural grantee organizations, grantees, and the public can receive and transmit information about the administration of biomedical and behavioral research. The ERA Commons is divided into both unrestricted and restricted portions that provide for public and confidential information, respectively.

- NIH Policy on Instruction in Responsible Conduct in Research - The NIH recently issued a notice updating their policy on instruction in the responsible conduct of research. The notice applies to all NIH Institutional Research Training Grants, Individual Fellowship Awards, Career Development Awards (Institutional and Individual), Research Education Grants, Dissertation Research Grants, or other grant programs with a training component that requires instruction in responsible conduct of research.

- NIH Information for New Investigators - Currently, NIH encourages new investigators to self-identify by checking a box on the electronic grant application form, so that they can be given special consideration. Peer reviewers are instructed to focus more on the proposed approach than on the track record, and to expect less preliminary data than would be provided by an established investigator. In addition, many NIH institutes and centers give new investigators special consideration in their selection for funding, and in some cases provide five years of support instead of the four that is the NIH average duration for a grant.
- Center for Scientific Review (CSR) Applicant Resources
- Insider’s Guide to Peer Review for Applicants - To help new and established applicants submit better applications, the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) asked six current and retired study section chairs to share their personal insights on what makes a good NIH grant application. Read what they said here.
- NIH Peer Review Revealed - CSR has produced a series of videos to give you an inside look at how scientists from across the country review NIH grant applications for scientific and technical merit. New and established applicants will find insights and understanding that can empower them to improve the applications and increase their chances for receiving a more positive review.
- All About Grants Podcast - The Office of Extramural Research (OER) presents conversations with NIH staff members. Designed for investigators, fellows, students, research administrators, and others, we provide insights on grant topics from those who live and breathe the information. In mp3 and updated every other week.
