eRA Commons Name

The eRA Commons is an online interface where signing officials, principal investigators, trainees and post-docs at institutions/organizations can access and share administrative information relating to research grants.  Signing Officials and Principal Investigators from applicant organizations do need an eRA Commons account, as do other people who may be assisting in the process of grant application submission.

Whether your research is grant funded or unfunded, if you receive CTSI services, we request you obtain an eRA commons ID so that our CTSI services supporting your research can be identified by our sponsor, NCATS, in our annual progress report.  Continued funding is dependent on identification of services.

If you do not have an eRA commons name, please call your respective grants management office at:

Boston University Medical Campus and Charles River Campus:
Kate Sokol
Business & Report Analyst
Research Operations, Systems, & Analytics
(617) 353-4365

  • Full name
