Grant Citation


Future funding requires we document our impact. Therefore, it’s critically important that you cite the grant when appropriate:

  • Your work was conceived or carried out as part of a CMCI or IMCI Working Group.
  • The research is funded by a CMCI or IMCI Project Grant, Pilot Grant or MAG.
  • You used major equipment purchased by the grant and/or resources provided by CMCI/IMCI.
  • One or more authors is funded entirely by the CMCI grant.
  • One or more authors is funded partially by the CMCI grant specifically for this work.
  • Authors do not have funding specifically for this work and the manuscript is closely related to the CMCI grant.

Please use this exact text for grant citation:

Research reported in this publication was supported by the National Institute Of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number P20GM104420. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.

As a federally funded program, we are required to file progress and activity reports on a regular basis. This means we need to collect a variety of information from IMCI participants. If you are a working group leader, please submit a Working Group Update Form 3 times a year – spring, summer and fall. Watch your email for due dates and reminders. You can also start a new working group at any time.

Occasionally, you might receive a request from Michele to start or update one of the following tracking worksheets:

  • Presentation Worksheet – Used for key IMCI participants to report presentations given.
  • Publications Worksheet – Used for keeping track of ALL submitted papers for publication. It’s important we record all manuscripts submitted, even if they are not successful, as each counts as “effort” on the project.
  • Grants Worksheet – Used to  track and report on ALL grants submitted and/or funded.
