Instructions

Request for use of Instruments

Individuals or groups may request use of instruments by email. Then we will proceed with scheduling training for either assisted or unassisted use which will be scheduled by core managers after the verification of approved service/instrument in their protocol. Access will be granted to individuals or groups after the initial training session.

Request for Service

Individuals or groups may request service by email and set up a meeting to discuss service requested. Services will be scheduled after verification of approved service/instrument in their protocol. Access will be granted to individuals or groups after an initial training session.

Acknowledgements

The CVRC requests that the uses of the facility’s instrumentation are acknowledged in any published papers. The following text provides an example of such an acknowledgment:

Portions of this work were carried out in the Cardiovascular Research Core via the Research Resources Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

In addition, co-authorship of papers may be appropriate when a CVRC staff member provides significant input to the research outcome or text for a detailed methods write-up. In other cases, a simple personal acknowledgment may be warranted.
