CaRES Acknowledgment on Publications and Posters


List your CaRES Internship on your CV or resume

To maintain our funding from the National Cancer Institute, CaRES faculty and 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 evaluation data we must collect are the citations of publications, oral presentations, and poster presentations relating to CaRES research.  Whenever CaRES research is published in peer-reviewed journals or is presented as podium presentations, abstracts or posters at professional meetings, CaRES is favorably publicized, and the NCI can see the fruits of its investment in our training grant.  

It is our wish that each CaRES student is the first author (if appropriate) or is otherwise included in the authorship, of at least one paper relating to his or her CaRES research.  To assist us in identifying CaRES publications, abstracts, and posters, please acknowledge the role of CaRES in supporting you.  Acknowledgments are “searchable” by our NCI training grant number 5R25CA076023.  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 your CaRES research.  Here are a few possible formats for the acknowledgment:
