One new form now required for all NIH proposals is the PHS Human Subjects and Clinical Trials Information (OMB Number: 0925-0001, Exp. 03/31/2020). If a project utilizes human blood, materials, or fluids, but does not qualify as human subjects research, it must explain the reason why it is exempt. Forms-E instructions for this form are available here. A helpful classification flowchart for Research Involving Private Information or Biological Specimens is also available.
