Acknowledgement of NU GoKidney Services & Resources

Please acknowledge / cite our grant if you've used any of our services or resources for your work.

Why do we ask for acknowledgement?

Northwestern’s George M. O’Brien Kidney Center – NUGoKidney – is funded in part by a Kidney Disease Centers – U54 Research Core Grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The acknowledgement allows us to measure Center productivity, demonstrate the efficient use of grant funds, and effectively compete for future funding to continue to develop the resources, services, and infrastructure to continue to support investigators and clinicians in kidney disease research.

If NUGoKidney has contributed in any way to a publication, poster, or presentation, please support us by citing NUGoKidney's grant number U54 DK137516-01 in the acknowledgment section.

For peer-reviewed articles, NIH requires these are publicly available on PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication (NIH Public Access Policy). Manuscripts should be submitted through the NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) system and the U54 DK137516-01 should be cited as granting support in MyNCBI.

Who should include an acknowledgement?

We ask the following groups to acknowledge work, resources, and services provided by NUGoKidney to include:

  • Individuals directly funded by pilot and feasibility grants, vouchers, or other similar mechanisms provided by NU GoKidney
  • Individuals who use NU GoKidney resources and services (e.g., Core Services - this includes instrument use, consultation, therapeutic delivery, etc,.) for a research project and any downstream publications directly resulting from the project
