All Microscopy, Imaging and Cytometry Resources Core (MICR) facility users are required to cite MICR in publications featuring MICR work.  When citing this facility in your publications, please mention in the Materials/Methods section that your flow cytometry / in vivo imaging / confocal microscopy was done at the Microscopy, Imaging and Cytometry Resources Core at Wayne State University, School of Medicine. 

Additionally, the MICR is supported, in part, through a NIH/NCI Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG), P30 CA022453 (PI: Bepler). When a publication results from use of a KCI Shared Resource, it is essential that the CCSG be listed in the funding acknowledgements section of the published article. This helps identify research supported by the NIH. Specifically:

The Microscopy, Imaging and Cytometry Resources Core is supported, in part, by NIH Center grant P30 CA022453 to the Karmanos Cancer Institute at Wayne State University, and the Perinatology Research Branch of the National Institutes of Child Health and Development at Wayne State University.


NIH Public Access Policy

Because the MICR is supported in part through the CCSG, any peer-reviewed manuscript which includes results from the MICR Core must adhere to the NIH Public Access Policy, which states:

The NIH Public Access Policy ( applies to ANY manuscript that: 

  • is peer-reviewed

  • is accepted for publication in a journal on or after April 7, 2008

And arises from:

  • Any direct funding from an NIH grant or cooperative agreement active in Fiscal Year 2008 or beyond, or;

  • Any direct funding from an NIH contract signed on or after April 7, 2008, or;
  • Any direct funding from the NIH Intramural Program, or;

  • An NIH employee.

Compliance is evidenced by the presence of a PubMed Central ID (PMCID) number. You are required to provide the PMCID number when citing your papers in biosketches, NIH applications, proposals, and reports.

Some journals automatically deposit all NIH-funded final published articles in PubMed Central, to be made publicly available within 12 months of publication, without author involvement. Alternatively, articles can be submitted by the author or designee through the NIHMS system ( KCI Research Administration acts as the designee on behalf of KCI members.

The NIH Public Access Policy applies to all publications that are funded directly through the P30 Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) via CCSG-supported Shared Resources, Developmental Funds or Early Phase Clinical Research Support (EPCRS) funds.
