It is recommended that you submit your peer-reviewed final manuscripts, accepted for publication, to PubMed Central (PMC).  PMC submission assistance can be found here.  Below you will find templates on how to acknowledge your funding source; please note the text is different for NIH funded trainees and TGS funded cluster members.
