Purpose

To enable investigators to resubmit their applications when their initial peer review results are not in the fundable range.

Procedure

For unfunded applications, an investigator may resubmit an application once within 37 months of the application's original receipt date.

Resubmissions must address reviewer comments from the original application's summary statement.

Investigators and Applicants

  • Include an introduction that addresses the previous summary statement and indicate how your resubmission differs from the previous submission. For an electronic application, the introduction is a PDF attached to the PHS 398 Research Plan component.
  • Indicate substantial scientific changes in one of two ways:
    • Outline them in your introduction, summarizing substantial additions, deletions, and changes to the application. If most of the text has changed, go this route rather than the next one.
    • Use arrows, brackets, indents, or a new font.
  • If your application in response to a request for applications did not succeed and you want to submit it again, convert it into a new investigator-initiated application.
  • Follow our advice for timing and other matters.
  • If you are not funded after the initial submission and one resubmission, you must submit a new research application.
