The RI-INBRE program, entitled “Rhode Island IDeA Network for Excellence in Biomedical Research,” is a state-wide infrastructure development program. It is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to the University of Rhode Island, with Dr. Zahir Shaikh as the Principal Investigator and Program Director. The grant supports biomedical research by faculty and students at the participating institutions in the state through student and postdoctoral stipends, faculty salaries, research equipment, research supplies, travel to scientific meetings, and renovation of laboratory space. It also supports the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program. Additionally, the grant provides modest or no cost access to research equipment, software, and related services through the RI-INBRE Centralized Research Core Facility and the Bioinformatics Core located in the College of Pharmacy Building at the University of Rhode Island’s Kingston Campus.
As a condition for accepting research support, either directly through a research or training award from the RI-INBRE Program, or through the use of its Core Facilities or services, the beneficiaries are required to acknowledge the RI-INBRE grant in their scientific meeting abstracts and publications along with a disclaimer. Compliance with NIH’s Public Access Policy is also required.
The acknowledgement in all abstracts and publications may be stated as: “Research reported in this [publication, release] was supported (fully or in part, as appropriate) by the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network for Biomedical Research Excellence from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant number P20GM103430.” Core […]
All posters printed by the RI-INBRE Centralized Research Core Facility and not otherwise citing the RI-INBRE Grant require the following acknowledgment: “Poster printing service provided by the RI-INBRE Centralized Research Core Facility which is supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Network for Biomedical Research Excellence from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the […]
The NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research. It requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. To help advance science and improve human health, the Policy requires […]
Publicizing the outcomes of NIH-funded projects and communicating the role of NIH support in biomedical research improves public understanding of how we, the biomedical research community as a whole, are working to improve human health. This important information for researchers and public information officers (PIOs) describes how to correctly acknowledge NIH in your presentations, papers, […]
When citing your NIH grant in your research publications, include the activity code (eg., R01), and two-letter institute code (eg., GM) followed by the serial number (including any leading zeros), and leave out any separating spaces or dashes. So, a proper grant number citation would look like this: R01GM987654
