I want to bring to your attention the new requirement regarding Harassment and Discrimination Protections in NIH Training Applications, NOT-OD-19-029.
Beginning for applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2019, institutional training grant applications (T15, T32, T34, T35, T36, T37, T90/R90, TL1, TL4) must include a letter that describes the institutional commitment to ensuring that proper policies, procedures, and oversight are in place to prevent discriminatory harassment and other discriminatory practices. This letter should be included with other Letters of Support on the PHS 398 Research Training Program Plan form.
OVPR Research Administration and Development is working with relevant Tufts offices on the letter that will be available for inclusion in the applications. Please contact Sarah Marina (copied on this email) with any questions related to this letter.
