The Grants and Contracts Office (GCO) strongly recommends that human subjects researchers take advantage of educational resources issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to inform grants applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2018.
A primary component of NIH’s initiative to enhance the stewardship of clinical trials is the creation of a new application form that consolidates all Human Subjects and Clinical Trial related information into one place, and also expands the information required for studies that meet the NIH definition of a clinical trial. This new form will be included in the new FORMS-E Application Packages and will be required for all applications with due dates on or after January 25, 2018.
To support this endeavor for Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) researchers, the GCO would like to highlight the following NIH resources:
- Podcast: “Understanding the Definition of a Clinical Trial and What That Means for You”
- Overview of New NIH Policies on Human Subjects Research and Clinical Trials
- A Walk-through of the PHS Human Subjects and Clinical Trials Information Form

To learn more about the new Human Subjects and Clinical Trial Information form which will be included in grant application packages and contract for all human subjects and/or clinical trial research applications beginning for January 25, 2018 due dates, visit the NIH New Human Subjects and Clinical Trial Information Form web site.
