Welcome to the new Feedback Loop site, the place to get NIGMS news as it happens.
For this first post, I want to update you on NIH and NIGMS Recovery Act funding plans and opportunities. If you have questions about administrative supplements, revisions or two-year R01s, you should read the FAQs we just posted on the NIGMS Recovery Act Web site.
We want this resource to be as useful as possible, so I encourage you to let us know if you have questions that aren’t answered in our FAQs or in the NIH FAQs we link to. One way to do this is by submitting a comment to this post.
Also be sure to visit our updated NIGMS Recovery Act guidance document. It includes information on three recent NIH notices:
- Funding considerations for applications with meritorious scores that fall beyond the payline
- Programmatic limitations and use of modular budgets in relation to supplement and revision requests
- Specific business processes for Recovery Act funding
We plan to make new Feedback Loop posts about once a week and focus on one or a few topics each time, so you can quickly get the information you need. We’ll also organize previous posts by topic so you can easily find them.
Please tell your colleagues about the site and encourage them to subscribe, as well.
