Answers to Common Questions Investigators Ask EGRP Program Directors
Scientific Program Directors in the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) have a number of responsibilities, one of which is to help potential and current grantees understand NCI and NIH grants policies and procedures.
EGRP’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page contains answers to questions about NCI and NIH grants that our staff receive most often. Below are some FAQs you will find answered on this new web page:
- How can I request that my application gets reviewed in a specific study section?
- What should I do when a grant may have unobligated funds at the end of a budget period?
- How can I tell if NIH considers me an Early Stage Investigator?
- I have never had an R01. Will I lose my eligibility to be considered an “Early Stage Investigator” if I am a PI of a grant application with a multiple PI approach?
- I submitted my grant application to a PAR that has expired. Can I submit my amended application to another PAR?
- If a PI submits an application as an R21, then submits as an R01, will the R01 application be considered a resubmission (A1) or a new submission?
- Can I submit an application under an NIH Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) if I’ve already submitted the same or similar investigator-initiated application to NIH, and it is currently pending review?
We also encourage you to explore the grant resources section of EGRP's website for links to more information about preparing, submitting, and tracking a grant application; the peer review process; award management and reporting; and more. Answers to many more questions are available through the NIH Grants & Funding website.
Additionally, EGRP Program Directors are always available to answer your questions about the submission process. Investigators who do not currently have an assigned Program Director are invited to review the EGRP staff list to identify Program Directors with relevant scientific interests to contact.
