In a continuing effort to support researchers, NIH has once again extended its policy exception allowing applicants to send one page with preliminary data as post-submission materials.
As detailed in the April 25, 2022 Guide notice, the exception is in effect for applications submitted for the January 2023 Council rounds, starting with the May 25, 2022 due date. NIH as well as the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health will accept a one-page update with preliminary data as post-submission materials for applications submitted under all activity codes, only if the funding opportunity announcement used for submission allowed preliminary data in the application. One page of preliminary data will be accepted for single component applications or for each component of a multi-component application.
Note that you should not include pandemic-related contingency plans in your application. NIH instructs reviewers to assume that any constraints arising from COVID-19 (e.g., lab occupancy restrictions, declines in patient accrual) will be resolved during the project period and thus should not affect scores.
