Support for Early and Mid-Career Investigators and the Grant Support Index


Dear Colleagues,

As a follow up to Thursday’s announcement from the NIH regarding the Grant Support Index (GSI), I write to share information on ways the NIH is planning to strengthen and stabilize biomedical research efforts.  Despite dropping the GSI point system, the NIH has taken the feedback from many in our community and is working on additional policies to foster the funding of early-stage and mid-career investigators.

All best,
