Did We Help You? Cite the Grant that Made it Happen.

Help us continue to help you. Giving attribution to our grant helps ensure future support.

We’re required to give annual progress reports to the NIH to show we’re making an impact. One of the ways the NIH measures that impact is by tracking the number of grant citations that note the ITM’s grant number.

Help us continue to help you and others who want to improve health for all by attributing support to our grant from the NIH in any scientific journal publications, presentations, online stories, etc. What to say and how to say it can be found below for easy copy-pasting. And we’ve already compiled a master ITM Resources and Environment document that you can download here for use in your grant applications.

The project period for the grant runs 09/06/2017 through 06/30/2021. The first year budget period runs 09/06/2017 through 06/30/2017. The total grant award is nearly $35 million, with $7,000,390 for Year 1 and $27,807,803 total for Years 2 through 4.

Question about how best to cite the grant for your project? We’re happy to help. Just send a message to Regina Kinyui, the ITM’s administrative coordinator, at rkinyui@bsd.uchicago.edu.

Year 1 Award $5,837,630

This is the main grant mechanism that runs the ITM. Most faculty who receive salary support from the ITM should use this grant number on their support pages. This is also the grant number that must be used in publications for research, online news stories, or projects that receive ITM support. Researchers who receive Pilot Awards, funding for Core Facilities, and/or use Biostatistics, the CRC, and any other general ITM consulting or service should use the following text in publications and presentations.

“This project was supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through Grant Number UL1TR002389 that funds the Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM). The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH.”

This grant funds the ITM Career Development (K) Awards Program. It only funds junior faculty and postdoctoral fellows who are appointed to the program.
