You’ve probably heard that NIH and AHRQ encourage applicants to use the recently published biosketch format for all grant and cooperative agreement applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2015, and will require use of the new format for applications submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015. Check out my post about the requirements and sample biosketches for details.
Have you created your biosketch in the new format yet? If not, there are now some resources available to help you save time with that task:
Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv): The SciENcv system allows you to enter or import your biographical data once, then convert it into a format that can be used when submitting NIH or NSF grant applications.
NIH National Library of Medicine: Their technical bulletin details how to create a biosketch by (1) importing your information from an external source (for example, an ORCID account, or an eRA Commons account), (2) manually entering your information, or (3) using your existing SciENcv profile.
