 Two-factor authentication

As of September 15, 2021, eRA has begun requiring two-factor authentication for principal investigators and key personnel 45 days after the submission of an application (Type 1 or 2) or Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR). Please note that due to this change, researchers will no longer be able to share their credentials with others for assistance with completing administrative tasks, including submission of Just-in-Time information or Research Performance Progress Reports. Questions about this change can be directed to grants@igb.illinois.edu.
