Acknowledgement for Cell Imaging Shared Resource
Our funding depends upon your acknowledgement of the Cell Imaging Shared Resource (CISR) when you publish or present data obtained with equipment or services from the CISR. This includes images from the microscopes, training in the use of software, use of image processing systems, experiment design, etc. Because we are fortunate to have so much Center support, the list of grant numbers is large.
Style I. The minimum acceptable acknowledgement should read:
“Experiments/Data analysis/presentation [include what you use]” were performed in part through the use of the Vanderbilt Cell Imaging Shared Resource.
Style II. If space permits, please append the following list of grant numbers:
“Experiments/Data analysis/presentation [include what you use]” were performed in part through the use of the Vanderbilt Cell Imaging Shared Resource (supported by NIH grants CA68485, DK20593, DK58404, DK59637 and EY08126).
Most of our equipment is obtained through S10 grant awards. Please include the following S10 grant number for the piece of equipment that you used in your paper:
Please let us know when you publish, and if possible, send us a reprint of the paper.
