We’d like to call your attention to a potential, new NIH Policy that stands to affect all PIs, described in two Open Mike Extramural Nexus postings by Dr. Michael Lauer, NIH's Deputy Director for Extramural Research: (1) Implementing Limits on Grant Support to Strengthen the Biomedical Research Workforce; and (2) Research Commitment Index: A New Tool for Describing Grant Support; posted on 05/02/2017 and 01/26/2017 respectively. Please note Table 1 on the RCI post that that shows the RCI point values for a PI per activity code and whether the grant has one or multiple PIs.
