A. Personal Statement
Briefly describe why your experience and qualifications make you particularly well-suited for your role (e.g.,
PD/PI, mentor, participating faculty) in the project that is the subject of the application. Within this section you
may, if you choose, briefly describe factors such as family care responsibilities, illness, disability, and active
duty military service that may have affected your scientific advancement or productivity.
B. Positions and Honors
List in chronological order previous positions, concluding with the present position. List any honors. Include
present membership on any Federal Government public advisory committee.
C. Selected Peer-reviewed Publications
NIH encourages applicants to limit the list of selected peer-reviewed publications or manuscripts in press to no
more than 15. Do not include manuscripts submitted or in preparation. The individual may choose to include
selected publications based on recency, importance to the field, and/or relevance to the proposed research.
When citing articles that fall under the Public Access Policy, were authored or co-authored by the applicant and
arose from NIH support, provide the NIH Manuscript Submission reference number (e.g., NIHMS97531) or the
PubMed Central (PMC) reference number (e.g., PMCID234567) for each article. If the PMCID is not yet
available because the Journal submits articles directly to PMC on behalf of their authors, indicate "PMC
Journal - In Process." A list of these Journals is posted at:
http://publicaccess.nih.gov/submit_process_journals.htm. Citations that are not covered by the Public Access
Policy, but are publicly available in a free, online format may include URLs or PMCID numbers along with the
full reference (note that copies of publicly available publications are not accepted as appendix material.)
D. Research Support
List both selected ongoing and completed research projects for the past three years (Federal or non-Federally-
supported). Begin with the projects that are most relevant to the research proposed in the application. Briefly
indicate the overall goals of the projects and responsibilities of the key person identified on the Biographical
Sketch. Do not include number of person months or direct costs.
