NIH statement on resuming activities after the shutdown

The National Institutes of Health has issued an updated statement and Sally Rockey has posted a blog concerning the resumption of activities after the shutdown. Of note:

  • Grant application deadlines that fell during the shutdown have been rescheduled to new November. R01 and K series grants will be due on Nov. 12. Other R series grants will be due Nov. 18.
  • Applications already submitted just prior to or during the shutdown may be withdrawn and resubmitted prior to the November deadline.
  • Peer review meetings, or study sections, that were canceled due to the shutdown will NOT be rescheduled for the near-term. Applications that were to be reviewed in these study sections will now be reviewed in February/March.
  • Applicants with grant applications that will now be reviewed in February/March will have the opportunity to withdraw and “refresh” their applications.
