SciENcv is a new researcher profile system for all individuals who apply for, receive or are associated with research investments from federal agencies. We highly recommend using it to create your NIH Biosketch to meet the new requirements (NOT-OD-16-080). Biosketches are required in both competing applications and progress reports.
To get started using SciENcv, first sign into NCBI (preferably with your eRA Commons account if you have one). In your NCBI account, look for the SciENcv box shown below and click on the link to create a new CV.
