What are Institutional Training Table Data Used For?

Modified: July 24, 2017

The NIH recently released a news item outlining the key items that the Institutional Training Table Data is used for by peer reviewers and NIH program staff in the evaluation of the application and making funding decisions. From the announcement:

For active training grants, NIH requests trainee and faculty data to assess the progress of these ongoing training awards. These data provide insight into:

  • the environment of the proposed training
  • distribution of participating faculty by research interest
  • existing support for training, and availability of funds to support trainees’ research
  • recruitment of new trainees and progress of existing trainees, as assessed by outcomes such as:
    • degree completion
    • publications
    • career progress
    • subsequent involvement in research-related activities
