No Clinical Trial-Related Materials Allowed in Appendix

As NIH did last month, we remind you that unless otherwise noted in the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to which you are applying, you can no longer include clinical trial-related materials in the Appendix of your grant application. Instead, you will put such materials in the new PHS Human Subjects and Clinical Trials Information Form if specified and required. 

The Appendix policy, which went into effect almost two weeks ago with applications due on or after January 25, lists materials that are allowed in the Appendix as well as information on what would render your application noncompliant. 

Be sure to read the January 12, 2018 Guide notice. For additional information, see NIH’s Frequently Asked Questions: Appendix Policy
