NIH Provides Guidance on Acknowledgement Language - 02/16/12

The transfer of NIH (National Institute of Health) grants from the NCRR (National Center for Research Resources) to other NIH funding components has led to questions about the acknowledgement language to be used in publications, press releases, etc.

According to the NIH, a reference should be included to both the NCRR and the new funding component on all products resulting from grants that have been transferred, as shown in this example: 

“This project was supported by the National Center for Research Resources and the [new funding component] of the National Institutes of Health through Grant Number XXXXX.”
