I have some questions about the deadline for submitting our Phase II application after the Phase I budget period ends, and how a one-year no-cost extension might affect that deadline.
According to the NIH website, “the recipient may submit a Phase II application either before or after expiration of the Phase I budget period. A Phase I recipient must submit a Phase II application within the first six application submission due dates following the expiration of the Phase I budget period.”
Can you please help us clarify whether we need to submit a Phase II application within the first six application deadlines after the end of the initial Phase I budget period? If we request an NIH STTR no-cost extension for one year, is the deadline for submitting a Phase II application based on the end date of the initial Phase I program plus the additional year provided by the no-cost extension？
Thank you very much for your help！
