By receiving the Clinical and Translational Science Award, the University of Minnesota is now required by the NIH to ensure an acknowledgment of the CTSA in any publications that result from UMN CTSI assistance with a project. This language was recently updated when the CTSA program was transferred from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) to the new National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) at the NIH.
When to acknowledge CTSA support
Please note that assistance is not limited to monetary support (e.g., pilot grant funds), but also includes use of CTSI space, consultation with CTSI faculty or staff, and use of any CTSI Internal Service Organization services (Project Management, Clinical Research Coordinators, Nursing and Nutritional Services, Biostatistical support, and Regulatory assistance such as IND/IDE support, clinical trial monitoring, or ClinicalTrials.gov support).
How to acknowledge CTSA support
All publications resulting from the use of CTSI resources are required to credit CTSA by using the text below.
"This publication [or project] was supported by Grant Number 1UL1RR033183 from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) and by Grant Number 8 UL1 TR000114-02 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the University of Minnesota Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CTSI or the NIH. The University of Minnesota CTSI is part of a national Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium created to accelerate laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients."
