New Guidance on NIH and AHRQ Requirements for Rigor and Transparency in Research

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) continue to issue guidance on the new requirements to address rigor and transparency in research grant applications. Clarifications continue to be issued through the NIH Extramural Nexus blogposts: An FAQ page is available at:

The updates (NIH & AHRQ Announce Upcoming Changes to Policies, Instructions and Forms for 2016 Grant Applications), which are effective for applications submitted on or after January 25, 2016, focus on four areas:
1) the scientific premise forming the basis of the proposed research,
2) rigorous experimental design for robust and unbiased results,
3) consideration of relevant biological variables, and
4) authentication of key biological and/or chemical resources. 

The Proposal Development Office has also posted workshop slides providing training on the new requirements:
