Publishing your Research
As a facility funded by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), we receive funding from the federal and state governments to help fund instruments and staff.  This funding is reliant on us demonstrating how important microscopy is to researchers.  Acknowledgement in publications is one of the main ways we can demonstrate this.
