The upcoming NIH Deadline for new R01s is Monday June 5th. Historically, this has been one of the busiest deadlines of the year for Grants.gov and eRA Commons.
Proposals should be submitted to DSP using UFIRST as early as possible. Best would be no later than Friday.
From experience, Grants.gov proposal validations take several minutes to hours and until your proposal is validated by Grants.gov, DSP cannot address submission errors in eRA Commons.
Please submit early to allow time to address any errors in Grants.gov and eRA Commons.
If a proposal does not pass Grants.gov validation or receives errors in eRA Commons, deadlines can be missed.
