Link Your ORCID iD to Your eRA Commons Profile

Beginning October 1, 2019, the National Institutes of Health, Office of Extramural Research requires ORCID identifiers for individuals supported by institutional research training, career development, and other research education awards. xTrain appointments will not be accepted for agency review if potential appointees do not have an ORCID iD linked to their Electronic Research Administration (eRA) personal profile.

ORCID iDs will also be required for PD/PIs on individual fellowship and career development applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2020.
