Information for Core Directors

Roundtable Discussions
Core Directors of UM facilities are invited to attend bi-monthly Roundtable Discussions to network with other Directors of Core Facilities, hear about other cores and discuss best practices. Each Roundtable includes a 30 minutes presentation from one of the Core Directors, and 30 minutes of discussion.
Roundtables are typically held at the Miller School campus, with video-links to the other campuses.
For a schedule or further information, please contact Dr. Karin Scarpinato.

Acknowledgements

Please remember to acknowledge the contributions of the core facilities in your publications, abstracts, presentations, posters, and grant proposals. It is standard practice to provide explicit thanks for simple fee-for-service work by inclusion in an Acknowledgements section. In some cases, core managers/staff provide expertise, advice, and/or technical innovation that makes them candidates for authorship; these issues should be considered carefully and discussed as early in the process as practicable.
