CTSA Funding Citations
The University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute and its CTSA hub partner, Florida State University, are supported in part by three Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program grants awarded on August 15, 2015, and renewed for five years on July 2, 2019, by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences of the National Institutes of Health.
The UF-FSU CTSA grant numbers are UL1TR001427, KL2TR001429 and TL1TR001428. For the 2019-2024 project period, each grant year begins July 1 and ends June 30. The UL1 award covers operations of the CTSA hub outside of its KL2 junior faculty and TL1 predoctoral trainee programs.
In accordance with NIH requirements, all publications, news releases or other documents about research supported in whole or in part by the UF-FSU CTSA hub or its services must cite the appropriate NIH grant number(s) and ensure compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy (see resources below).
Below is recommended language for UF investigators based on the type of support received. Thanks for remembering to cite the CTSA and submit your publications to PubMed Central!

Designating Indirect Cost Distributions
How the CTSI Uses IDC Distributions
The CTSI uses IDC distributions to sustain subsidized access to its many services and resources for translational researchers — resources such as the Clinical Research Center, Clinical Research Vehicle, REDCap, UF Health Integrated Data Repository, UF StudyConnect, pilot grants, training programs, core laboratory facilities and services, regulatory and biostatistics support, and more.
How to Select the CTSI for IDC Distributions
If you accrued indirect costs in the past fiscal year, you should have received an email from the Office of Research directing you to indicate IDC distributions. Annually, the deadline to indicate these IDCs is June 30 via the myUFL Enterprise Analytics system. Here’s how to designate:
- Updates to center return distributions can be completed via a UFIRST Activity. For details regarding your current sponsored project distributions, please login using your Gatorlink at https://reporting.it.ufl.edu/. Navigate to Team Content > Sponsored Program Information > Awards > Center Return.
- To allocate a portion of your IDCs to the CTSI, select the following overhead account information:
- Department: MD-CTSI
- Overhead: 00082127
- PS Project Title: CTR-OH
Generous additional support for the UF CTSI comes from the UF Office of Research and UF Health. Additional support comes from in-kind contributions from various units. Private support is welcomed, see Make a Gift.
