NIH will be launching a second round of pilot tests for a new biosketch format.
The primary focus of the new NIH biosketch will be the magnitude and significance of the scientific advances associated with a researchers’ discoveries and specific role the researcher played in those findings. The new NIH biosketch will emphasize your accomplishment instead of just a list of publications. The new format will allow up to five pages for the entire biosketch, and researchers will be permitted to describe up to five of their most significant contributions to science, the influence of their contribution on their scientific fields, and any subsequent effect of those contributions on health or technology. Please watch for additional guidance on when this new format will be implemented.
