Acknowledging the CCTS

NIH requires researchers to acknowledge CTSA grant support in publications for use of CCTS services and resources

If you have accessed any services from the Ohio State University Center for Clinical and Translational Science, you are required to cite and submit the CTSA Grant UL1TR002733 with your publication.

For any research project that received any benefit from the CCTS (funding, use of tools, services, resources, collaborations, etc.), it is an NIH requirement to acknowledge the CTSA grant number of the institution providing support in any current or future publications. This acknowledgment is tracked and reported to the NIH and is used as a key metric for the success and continued funding of the OSU CCTS.

The language provided below is recommended for citing the CTSA grant in supported research:
