Change in Receipt Dates for NIGMS Research on Interventions Program


We recently published a notice (NOT-GM-20-050) announcing a single receipt date each year for our Research to Understand and Inform Interventions that Promote the Research Careers of Individuals in Biomedical Sciences (R01/R35) program.

The purpose of the program is to better understand the factors (e.g., social and behavioral) contributing to the success of individuals pursuing independent academic biomedical research careers. It supports research to enhance evidence for effective, high-impact, scalable interventions that may be focused on training programs, psychosocial factors, critical career transition points, or institutional culture. Due in part to the small number of applications received in response to this funding opportunity, the change in the program’s receipt date will allow us to increase efficiencies in the grant application review process.

Starting immediately, the program’s applicable dates are:

Application Receipt Date* Scientific Merit Review Advisory Council Review Earliest Start Date
October 15, 2020 February/March 2021 May 2021 July 2021
October 13, 2021 February/March 2022 May 2022 July 2022

*Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. local time of applicant organization.

Applicants are encouraged to apply early (before the receipt date deadline) to allow adequate time to correct errors in the application during the submission process.

If you have questions about the Research on Interventions program, contact Michael Sesma or Sydella Blatch. Peer review questions should be directed to Stephanie Constant.
