5. NIH Bio & Other Support Formats & Reporting Obligations – Effective January 25, 2022

In keeping with our institutional commitment to transparency, we are writing to remind you that the new NIH Biographical Sketch and Other Support formats and reporting obligations are effective January 25, 2022.  As part of the grant application, Just-in-Time (JIT), and/or annual progress report (RPPR), PIs and Key Personnel (PI/KP) are required to disclose all domestic and foreign

  • Financial, in-kind, and non-financial support of their research activities received through Mass General Brigham (MGB) and non-MGB institutions;
  • Consulting and outside activity funding that supports their research activities;
  • Salaried, non-salaried, and honorific appointments and affiliations;
  • Participation in foreign talent programs; and
  • For foreign appointments, documentation (with English translations if original documents are not in English) setting forth requirements (e.g., duties, time commitment, lab space, access to equipment and materials) and financial, in-kind, and non-financial support provided at the foreign institution or their MGB institution.

PI/KP are also required to notify their institutions of disclosure errors (e.g., failure to include support from a foreign sponsor or a foreign appointment on a grant application) and not wait until the next RPPR to inform the NIH or other federal sponsor or, worst case scenario, fail to provide this information altogether.   Research Management Pre-Award Grant Administrators are available to work with PI/KP in making these notifications.  MGB institutions have 30 days from receipt of corrections to inform the NIH. 
 
PI/KP should continue to use the RPPR to report new Other Support and/or foreign appointments and provide the requisite documentation. 
 
Information on how to fulfill these obligations, Insight modifications, and tools available for PI/KP are available on the Research Navigator. If you have not reviewed this information, we encourage you to do so now and to work with your Department Grant Administrators to modify your Biographical Sketch and Other Support so they reflect the latest federal requirements.

7. Mechanisms Underlying Cardiovascular Consequences Associated with COVID-19 and Long COVID, American Heart Association (AHA)

To better understand both COVID-19 and Long COVID, the American Heart Association (AHA) invites research proposals that will contribute to understanding the mechanism(s) underlying cardiac, vascular and cerebrovascular effects of these conditions, as well as mechanisms that contribute to differential susceptibility to Long COVID.  Proposals are sought that will utilize contemporary and innovative approaches to assess tissue damage and/or dysfunction of the heart and vasculature/cerebrovascular, and/or potential associated dysregulation of various signaling pathways and systems.  Proposals directed toward leveraging basic mechanistic discoveries, including identification of biomarkers, to develop therapeutic approaches for cardiovascular consequences of COVID are also of interest.  Due to the heterogeneity of Long COVID, important insights into key mechanistic underpinnings and potential treatment strategies are most likely to be achieved in participant populations with well-characterized phenotypes.       

Because of the racial and ethnic disparities associated with COVID-19 and Long COVID noted above,  proposals should have a strong focus on inclusion of demographically diverse subject populations.  Applicants proposing studies engaging individuals who have active Long COVID are encouraged to consider utilization of a patient-centered approach in designing, conducting and disseminating their studies (https://www.pcori.org/research-results/2021/using-body-mapping-develop-patient-centered-research-agenda-about-long-covid).

Citizenship: Unspecified

Award Amount: $500,000-$1 million paid over 3 years
Indirect Costs: 10%
Research Management Deadline: January 21, 2022
Application Deadline: February 1, 2022
