The use of compounds and data generated in the Medicinal Chemistry Core facility in a grant application, progress report, or publication contains the implicit understanding that the PI or authors will acknowledge the use of the core facility. Since the Medicinal Chemistry Core facility is supported by federal agencies, such acknowledgments are essential for obtaining continuing support.
If core personnel provide significant intellectual input to the results submitted for publication, then it is reasonable and appropriate to include them as co-authors. Since circumstances vary widely, each case should be considered individually, and the core should be consulted for review prior to publishing.
