Resubmission of applications

A final report will be required at the end of the funding period, and should include a description of the arrangements made for implementing the improvement in Mayo's practice or the impact the work has on the field. The NIH requires that results be tracked according to:

  1. Documented effect on clinical practice and educational programs
  2. Career development milestones
  3. Number and quality of resulting publications, grant submissions and grants awarded. The impact may be tracked for up to three years after the funding period is complete. Please note that no-cost extensions cannot be granted by research services.


The NIH Public Access Policy requires that all publications resulting from NIH funding be uploaded to PubMed Central. CTSA awards, including intramurally funded awards, must follow this policy. The Mayo Clinic Public Access Policy intranet site (must be logged in to the Mayo network) will guide awardees through the process of uploading publications.

Please remember to cite the Mayo Clinic CTSA grant in your publication:

This publication was made possible by the Mayo Clinic CTSA through grant number UL1 TR000135 from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
