NCRR Acknowledgement of NIH funding

Dear NIH grantee institutional official,

The transfer of NIH grants from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) to other NIH funding components has led to questions about the acknowledgement language to be used in publications, press releases, etc. Please reference both the NCRR and the new funding component on all products resulting from grants that have been transferred, as per the example below.

“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.”

Thank you for your continued support of the NIH mission.

Sally Rockey, Ph.D.
Deputy Director for Extramural Research
National Institutes of Health
