Yes, wishes do come true! The dreaded NIH biosketch format might look a little different if enough of us have our say! A working group is asking for input, after enough PI’s have complained about the biosketch format constraining their career accomplishments in a 2 or 4 page format!
How great is that! The model they are looking at is the Howard Hughes Medical Institute biosketch, which highlights more scientific accomplishments while looking NIH-like. Learn more about the changes in store for the NIH Biosketch and e-mail the Biosketch Working Group. The deadline for input is June 29, but I’m sure it will be extended to allow for more ideas to be submitted. Research administrators should feel free to submit ideas as well as to inform their investigators that input is needed!
