This page contains some additional resources that Vanderbilt MSTP students might find helpful.
For C2.0 requirements please see this website and the document below: https://medschool.vanderbilt.edu/ume/md-phd-requirements-c20
It is very important that the work you publish during your time in the MSTP cites the T32 grant as it supports your training. This applies to all work in which you are listed as co-author (first or middle author). Below are some guidelines by the NIH, proper grant number to use, and some suggested language.
You would also list other funding that supported the research as applicable. If you are not the primary/corresponding author, please provide these statements to the primary or corresponding author for inclusion in the paper. If you have any questions or need help, feel free to contact the a member of the Leadership Team.
Requirements for Acknowledging NIH-Supported Research
According to NIH grants policy, all grantee publications, including:
- research publications
- press releases
- other publications or documents about research that is funded by NIH
must include the following two statements:
A specific acknowledgment of NIH grant support, such as:
“Research reported in this publication was supported by NIGMS of the National Institutes of Health under award number T32GM007347.”
A disclaimer that says:
“The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”
Public Access Compliance
Please also be aware that, in addition to this requirement to acknowledge Federal funding as described above, NIH also requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central upon acceptance for publication. To help advance science and improve human health, the Policy requires that these papers are accessible to the public on PubMed Central no later than 12 months after publication. Please visit the NIH Public Access Policy page for more information about these requirements.
What if you did not include the T32 in a prior publication?

- Reporting a paper on an NIH progress report associates the paper with that award. The association will appear with a silver lock in My Bibliography and cannot be deleted without permission from the funding NIH Institute or Center.
All of the awards that supported this research paper are listed in the paper itself. Do I need to do anything else?
Yes. My Bibliography will not harvest award information from the text of your paper or indexing services. You will need to associate the awards that supported your research with your citations in My Bibliography.
