Next Generation Researchers Initiative

September 27, 2017

The NIH has announced a new policy designed to invest in the next generation of researchers while enhancing workforce diversity. The policy will require institutes and centers (ICs) to prioritize awards that will fund Early Stage Investigators (ESIs) and Early Established Investigators (EEIs). The Office of the NIH Director (OD) will centrally track and maintain an updated census of the status of ESIs and EEIs, who are encouraged to enter the date of their terminal research degree or the end date of their post-graduate clinical training in their eRA Commons profile to ensure their correct identification.
