Biographical Sketch/Bibliography

Applicants to AHA research programs should use the NIH biographical sketch PHS SF424 (R&R). Applicants to fellowship programs should use the NIH Fellowship Applicant Biographical Sketch Format. All others should use the NIH General Biographical Sketch Format.

Convert the biographical sketch to Portable Document Format (pdf) prior to uploading it to Grants@Heart. Do not exceed five pages for the entire Biographical Sketch (including bibliography).

Use of the NIH biographical sketch is required for AHA programs beginning with January 2016 deadlines.

A-TRAC Pilot Program Applicants: Please submit your 5-page NIH Biosketch with your application to Anshula Kesh.
