Notice Announcing NHGRI Guidance for Third-Party Involvement in Extramural Research

(NOT-HG-21-023)
National Human Genome Research Institute

The National Human Genome Research Institute’s (NHGRI) extramural grantees and contract-recipients sometimes seek or receive offers of support from companies or other third parties (e.g., nonprofits, other government agencies) for their studies, sub-studies, and ancillary studies after the grant or contract has been awarded. NHGRI is open to third-party involvement in NHGRI-supported studies and contracts, so long as the primary purpose of the studies and contracts is not compromised and National Institutes of Health (NIH) and NHGRI policies are followed. To that end, NHGRI has developedGuidance for Third-Party Involvement in NHGRI-Supported Extramural Projectswhich outlines the type of third-party involvement NHGRI generally finds appropriate.

Please review the full guide notice and guidance document for additional information regarding this requirement.
