New requirement for investigators applying for funding. Please read to see if it applies to your application. The NIH Policy on Sharing of Model Organisms for Biomedical Research was published in the NIH Guide on May 7, 2004 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-04-042.html). This is an extension of NIH policy on sharing research resources, and reaffirms NIH support for the concept of sharing. The new policy becomes effective with the October 1, 2004 receipt date for applications or proposals to NIH.
