Acknowledging the Core

Our funding depends on our users and collaborators acknowledging the contributions of the Neuroscience Microscopy Core in their research and publications.

We suggest using the following language for this acknowledgement:

Microscopy was performed at the UNC Neuroscience Microscopy Core (RRID:SCR_019060), supported, in part, by funding from the NIH-NICHD Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center Support Grant P50 HD103573.

If the Zeiss LMS 980 was used in your research, please include the following language in your acknowledgement:

The Zeiss LSM 980 microscope was funded with support from NIH grant S10 OD032388.

If the ASI ct-dSPIM was used in your research, please include the following language in your acknowledgement:

The ASI ct-dSPIM microscope was funded with support from NIH grant S10 MH130455
