In the upper right hand corner of the NCBI homepage, you will see a Sign in to NCBI hyperlink. Click on this link.
You are now on the sign in landing page. There are a variety of log-in options presented. You can sign in with a third party option or register for an NCBI account using whichever contact information you'd prefer.
If you are an NIH-funded researcher and you don't want to have another set of log-in credentials, you may prefer to use the 3rd party option of signing into NCBI with your NIH Login or eRA Commons accounts.
Once on the registration page, you can proceed with creating your NCBI account with any email you choose. You are also presented with another 3rd party registration option via your affiliated University.
If you choose to use the University of Chicago third party sign in option, you will prompted to this page.
Once you are registered, you will be directed to your personal NCBI account landing page (also called My NCBI). Please review the video playlist to the left of this column to review how you can customize this page.
