NIH Biosketch (2020) Defaults

NIH requires use of either its portal or SciENcv as of May 25, 2021. We are working with NIH to integrate, though we've been told they do not have capacity to facilitate this right now. Interfolio released the 2021 NIH biosketch updates to the template in May 2021.  The biosketch available to generate, however faculty will also need to use SciENcv or the NIH portal for submission. We confirm whether the biosketch is needed during implementation, so we know in advance to ensure the appropriate configuration decisions are made for it feature to work properly with the data that exists in FAR.

The biosketch template "NIH Biosketch Template" has been renamed to "NIH Biosketch (<whenever introduced>)".

In an earlier release we created a box that will house profile details. In the vita output, this box should replace the "header."

  • Name, Position Title, and Education/Training (Degrees) should be pulled automatically from the DB.
  • eRA Commons user name will need to be added manually; this should show up as a section on the Edit screen, represented by an open text box (not RTE).

All remaining sections should work the same as in the previous Biosketch template.

We have also corrected the mapping of sections and added new sections at the top.

Below you will find an image identifying what sections are being mapped into the template by default.

Attention: We understand that the majority of sections that are currently mapping are no longer being used by some of our clients.

If the mapping does not reflect your database, and remapping is needed, please submit a request for remapping to our Scholar Services support team:
