Scientific Acknowledgement of Core Laboratories

The journal Biotechniques is now requiring authors to declare the core facilities that contribute to the research results reported in manuscripts before they can be accepted for publication. That is according to a December editorial in the journal that draws attention to the issues related to giving scientific attribution to core facilities.

It is noteworthy that attribution of core facility contributions has a direct bearing on major grants here at the UT Health Science Center, including the Cancer Therapy and Research Center’s (CTRC) designation as an NCI Cancer Center and the Institute for Integration of Medicine & Science Clinical & Translational Science Award (IIMS / CTSA).
