NIH Announces Updated Resubmission Policy:  For application due dates after April 16, 2014, following an unsuccessful resubmission application, applicants may submit the same idea as a new application for the next appropriate due date. The NIH will not assess the similarity of the science in the new application to any previously reviewed submission. The new application does not allow an introduction or responses to the previous reviews, but the NIH encourages applicants to refine and strengthen all application submissions. For further information, see the announcement and read this article by Dr. Sally Rocky, NIH’s Deputy Director for Extramural Research.
