Completion of question 6 on Cover Page Supplement – Inventions and Patents. If a user responds “NO” to that question, on an application type other than a renewal, is that a problem with either the NIH system validations or with the reviewers? ▾
NIH says: "Providing a ‘No’ to the Inventions and Patents question for a resubmission is not a problem. Resubmissions can certainly be tricky. As you know, you can only select one ‘Type of Application’ and resubmission trumps renewal, per our instructions. Since it is possible to have a resubmission of a renewal, the forms and our validations allow data items that pertain to renewals to be available for resubmissions, as well."
