NIH Citing and Resources

Initiated in 2001, the National Cancer Institute’s Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (PACHE), is a program that enables institutions serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students and NCI-designated Cancer Centers to train scientists from diverse backgrounds in cancer research and to effectively deliver cancer advances to underserved communities.

Who should cite the ChicagoCHEC grant?

As ChicagoCHEC supports research, education, and community engagement infrastructure at Northwestern University, Northeastern Illinois University, and University of Illinois at Chicago, all publications and products that relate to work in ChicagoCHEC in any way should cite the ChicagoCHEC grants. Individuals who must cite the grants in their work include the following groups:

  1. Investigators and trainees are required to link all manuscripts that result from work funded by ChicagoCHEC and any downstream publications that flow from ChicagoCHEC funded research or program activities.
  2. Individuals directly funded by ChicagoCHEC cores, or by project, pilot, or partnership development grants should cite ChicagoCHEC in any project output or publication.
  3. Individuals who use ChicagoCHEC resources or services (offered by cores, projects, pilots, or partnership development projects) for any project output or publication.

How do I cite and acknowledge the ChicagoCHEC grant in my publications and products?

The acknowledgment must site all three NCI grants: U54CA202995, U54CA202997, and U54CA203000. The following disclaimer should be used:
