Welcome to eCONNECT

eCONNECT is your electronic portal for submitting clinical study-related performance and accrual milestones, progress on milestones, and other study-related information to NHLBI.

You can submit the following information to NHLBI with eCONNECT:

  • Performance Milestones as required by your study's Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)
  • Target Accrual Plans (sometimes referred to as Milestone Accrual Plans or MAPs)
  • Actual accrual data
  • Documents supporting progress on Performance Milestones
NHLBI staff conduct training on eCONNECT for every new study team. Please complete the training before submitting anything to the portal. If necessary, reach out to NHLBI staff to schedule training. Once you've completed training, you can refresh your knowledge using the eCONNECT User Guide.

Please note:

  • eCONNECT is only available for National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) grants.
  • eCONNECT works best using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Safari is not recommended.
