eRA Commons IDs Required
The NIH now requires an eRA Commons ID for all individuals in postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate student roles who participate in NIH-funded projects for at least one person month (160 hours) or more. This information will be collected by INBRE for the NIH annual Research Performance Program Report (RPPR). Graduate students and post-docs will be required to complete their eRA Commons Profile, which includes demographic questions and educational degree information. RPPRs lacking this data will receive an error and the RPPR will not be accepted by the NIH. Anyone wishing to establish an eRA Commons account or affiliate with the University of Alaska must make a request to authorized personnel at their respective campus. To find out who the authorized representative(s) are at your campus, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For the full notice, please see NIH Notice NOT-OD-13-097. The following tools for creating eRA Commons Accounts are also available:
