I stay current on NIH happenings and I’d be delighted to keep you informed.

Applications submitted on or after January 25, 2023 must include a Data Management and Sharing (DMS) plan for review. The policy applies to all research, funded or conducted in whole or in part by NIH, that results in the generation of scientific data.
