All NIH eRA services (including both the eRA Commons and ASSIST) will be completely shut down for system upgrading over the Memorial Day weekend. The systems will be brought down at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 23 and are expected to be restored to service by Tuesday, May 27 at 7 a.m.
This downtime is necessary to complete the upgrade of all eRA systems so they are Unicode capable. As a result of this upgrade, eRA systems will be able to accept Greek characters and other scientific characters as they appear in the original scientific text submitted by applicants.
On April 17, NIH and AHRQ announced a policy update, effective for application due dates after April 16, to allow applicants to submit a grant application as a new one, even if it has been reviewed previously.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support the creation of educational opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in areas of biomedical or behavioral research of particular interest to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) , while fostering the career development of these students and fellows.
mHealth Evidence, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, McKesson Foundation, the National Science
Foundation and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research at NIH, is
soliciting white papers on alternative test designs to the traditional
randomized control trial that could be applied to Mobile health (mHealth) intervention research
or on techniques for analyzing the rich longitudinal data sets that can be
obtained from mHealth technologies.
