NIH Web Based Progress Reports RPPR

 How to Simplify and Master the NIH’s  Web Based Progress Reports (RPPR)

60-Minute Webinar available in CD-Rom or MP4
All formats include the PDF presentation handouts


Per the NIH “progress reports are required annually to document grantee accomplishments and compliance with terms of award. They describe scientific progress, identify significant changes, report on personnel, and describe plans for the subsequent budget period or year.”  Furthermore, the NIH now “requires the use of the RPPR module in eRA Commons to submit ALL annual progress reports.”

During this information-packed Webinar, your presenter will cover the process of writing and submitting a progress report for an NIH grant which follows an eSNAP type format. You will also learn how to report accomplishments that are specific for your grant, as well as other opportunities which might be important to report.  Learn how to formulate next year’s plans and how to report publications linked to your grant. Additional information pertinent to the grant will be covered.

Your presenter will also go over how to handle any changes to the grant—what is allowed and what is not allowed—without prior NIH permission. Learn how to report the use of animals or human subjects, and how to handle the budget from the previous year and the coming year.  Come away with expert guidance to help you simplify and master this relatively new reporting process.

Dorothy Lewis-new

Dr. Dorothy Lewis, Professor, Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Health Science Center has a 25-year history of writing grant applications, including vast experience with the new scoring system. Her successful track record for winning grants has given her a valuable “in the trenches” perspective that can benefit you, at whichever stage you find yourself. She received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona in Tucson. She then pursued an NIH-supported postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico, School of Medicine in Albuquerque. In 1985, she published her first paper related to T-cell subset changes in HIV patients and acquired her own independent NIH funding. She has maintained continuous NIH funding since 1985, experiencing both times of multiple grants and times of reduced funding. She is a member of the Training and Workforce Diversity Study Section C, called TWD-C (2012-2016) and former chair of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2009-2011).
