Update from NIH regarding reporting of Outside Research Support, Relevant Affiliations, or Foreign Components

October 17, 2018


Dear Colleagues:


In an August 20 letter to National Institutes of Health (NIH)-sponsored research universities, NIH Director Francis S. Collins reaffirmed that NIH grant applicants and awardees “must disclose all forms of other support and financial interests, including support coming from foreign governments or other foreign entities.” The letter also emphasizes the NIH Grants Policy Statement requirements that “all applications and progress reports (must) include all sources of research support, financial interests, and relevant affiliations.”


Emory University is cooperating with NIH in their efforts to ensure that university intellectual property is safeguarded and inappropriate sharing of confidential information in association with NIH-sponsored research is prevented. 


As with all NIH requirements, adherence to this NIH policy is critical to help maintain the integrity of the U.S. biomedical research enterprise.  Please address any questions to the Emory Office of Research Administration at ORA@listserv.cc.emory.edu.
