CaRES Acknowledgment on Publications and Posters

In order to maintain our funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) our CaRES staff members must continuously gather program evaluation data to verify that CaRES student interns undertake important and worthwhile cancer research projects. 

One of the primary sorts of data that we must collect are the citations of publications, oral presentations, and poster presentations relating to CaRES research methods and results.  Whenever CaRES-related research is published in peer-reviewed journals or presented as abstracts or posters at professional meetings, our program is publicized in a positive way, and the NCI can see the fruits of its investment in our training grant at our university. 

It is our wish that each CaRES student be the first author (if appropriate) on at least one CaRES-related paper, or be included elsewhere in the authorship, whenever his / her CaRES project methods and results are published or presented.

In order to assist our staff in identifying CaRES-related publications, abstracts, and posters, CaRES interns and preceptors are asked to acknowledge the role of CaRES in supporting the student.  Such acknowledgments are “searchable” by our NCI training grant number 5R25CA076023, making our lives easier! 

We suggest that you acknowledge CaRES in the manner required by the journal in which you publish, or as directed by the professional organization at whose meeting you present; or if you wish you may use phraseology such as the following: 

Acknowledgment

“This research was supported in part by UAB’s Cancer Research Experiences for Students (CaRES) Program, 5R25CA076023, funded by the National Cancer Institute.” 

. . .OR . . .

“[Student name] was supported by UAB’s Cancer Research Experiences for Students (CaRES) Program, 5R25CA076023, funded by the National Cancer Institute.”

Thank you!
