Major Instrumentation Core
The Major Instrumentation Core has been established to provide technical services and consumable supplies necessary for the operation and maintenance of a variety of major instruments that support biomedical research at Xavier University. The long term goal of the Major Instrumentation Core is to enhance the overall biomedical research capabilities at Xavier University by making available essential instrument-based platforms for various research projects. To achieve this goal the Major Instrumentation Core has set the following specific aims:
1). support biomedical research projects on campus by providing essential analytical instrumentation,
2). maintain and operate existing instruments,
3). acquire new instruments, and
4). provide technical support for user community of the core.
Major Instrumentation Core Facilities
The Major Instrumentation Core Lab maintains several shared research facilities for cancer research. These facilities are also used for education. The following table lists the currently existing facilities along with their locations and faculty or research associate who maintain them. A 400 MHz NMR will be purchased soon and added to this list. If you are interested in using some of these facilities for your project, please download and fill a request form, and send it to the manager or the person associated with the facility of interest listed in the table.

Important Information for Core Users:
We hope the RCMI Major Instumentation Core is serving your research needs. As you are writing manuscripts, preparing presentations, and drafting grant applications that have resulted from core usage, please keep in mind the importance of citing the RCMI grant and following the NIH Public Access Policy. In order for a publication or presentation to be counted as productivity towards the RCMI Grant, it must be cited with the grant number and a publication must be deposited into PubMed Central.
Citations must credit NCRR's support. Please use the statements below when citing research that was completed with the assistance of an RCMI Core facility. If you are writing RCMI instrumentation into a grant, or using preliminary results obtained with the assistance of an RCMI Core facility, please cite RCMI in the grant application.
"This publication was made possible by NIH Grant Number 8G12MD007595-04 from the National Center for Research Resources. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the NIH."
Obtaining a PubMed Central (PMCID) (This is different than a PMID!)
As a result of NIH's Public Access Policy , the final, peer reviewed author manuscripts of journal articles that are supported by NIH funding must be deposited into PMC via the NIH Manuscript Submission System (NIHMSS) , as soon as the articles have been accepted for publication. Specifically, the final manuscript supplied to PMC is the version that the journal has accepted for publication, including any revisions that the author has made during the peer review process.
You may deposit your final, peer reviewed manuscript through the Manuscript Submission System http://www.nihms.nih.gov/ , using your eRA Commons login, NIH login, HHMI login, or My NCIB login. There are FAQs at the bottom of the webpage and submission tutorials are also available. If you do not have access to one of these logins, please contact Michelle Soliman for assistance with submission.
