Electronic submission of proposals to NIH via the Grants.gov portal requires that the Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) be registered with NIH eRA Commons. (Registration with Grants.gov is required for applicant institutions only, NOT individual investigators).
NOTE: PD/PIs currently registered only for Internet Assisted Review (IAR) must obtain a full eRA Commons registration using the process described here.
Each applicant institution manages the individual accounts for its investigators. Einstein faculty investigators who plan to serve as PD/PIs may open an NIH eRA Commons account by contacting Regina Janicki (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
