OHSU Research Cores and Shared Resources Acknowledgement & Authorship Policies

Acknowledgement Policy

The use of data generated in a core facility in a grant application, progress report or publication contains the implicit understanding that the PI or authors will acknowledge the use of the core facility.  Since many of our facilities are supported by federal agencies, such acknowledgments are essential for obtaining continuing support. 

Authorship Policy

If core personnel provide significant intellectual input to the results submitted for publication, then it is reasonable and appropriate to include them as co-authors.  Since circumstances vary widely, each case should be considered individually, and the core should be consulted for review prior to publishing.


Overview of Services


The OHSU Flow Cytometry Shared Resource (FCSR) has operated as a core resource for OHSU

researchers and the Knight Cancer Institute members since 1996 and the Oregon Stem Cell

Center since 2005. It provides advanced flow cytometry instrumentation, technical expertise

and technical services.


The FCSR also provides training in data interpretation, experiment design and routine

instrument operation, offering investigators a cost-saving option of doing some of the work

themselves. Finally, this resource saves valuable investigator time by analyzing specimens and

preparing them, if needed. For more information, please contact the core director Philip Streeter

or click this link to visit our website.
