Research Volunteers Sought: People living with COVID-19

The ACTIV-2/A5401 ADAPT treatment study for COVID positive individuals is now open and enrolling at the Ponce Center. The study is testing different medicines to see if the medicines: Are safe for those who need them; can help people get better faster; can get rid of the virus; can help keep oxygen levels up; can keep people from getting sicker; can prevent people from having to go to the hospital.

Mentoring Moment... NIH Redesigns the NoA

    
     Mentoring Moment...     
              

Starting on October 1, 2020, NIH funding recipients began seeing a new standardized Page One of their Notice of Award (NoA).

This enhancement is part of HHS's Reinvent Grants Management initiative to standardize the NoA across various HHS systems and reduce the burden on recipients.

The new format is reported to capture key award information for grant recipients in an intuitive and digitally accessible format.

For instance, financial award information and federal agency contacts (program official contact information, etc.) will be available on Page One. The remaining sections of the NoA will remain mostly as is, with some data elements moving to Page One from subsequent pages of the NoA.
