NIH Redesigns Web Sites

The National Institutes of Health has revised the NIH home page, and the NIH Office for Extramural Research has a new, improved OER Grants web site as well as a revamped, customer-focused Electronic Research Administration (eRA) home page.

The new OER site includes the following new features and changes:
  • New overall look and feel with updated graphics;
  • New site features, with content managers, updated header, site navigation, right-side information area and footer;
  • New content pages, providing an overview of the NIH grants process and more;
  • Many updated web pages, some with significant content changes;
  • Some pages removed and other actions taken;
  • Links to the redesigned eRA web site.
OER has posted a summary of changes that lists new site features and new content pages. New content includes web pages on grant application basics, a grants process overview with a process-at-a-glance chart, the peer review process, and award management.
