nf-core is by design a collaborative effort, and would not exist if it were not for the efforts of many dedicated contributors. You can see a list of nf-core members on GitHub: https://github.com/orgs/nf-core/people
Some of the organisations running nf-core pipelines are listed below, along with a key person who you can contact for advice.

The Quantitative Biology Center provides a one-stop-shop for access to high-throughput technologies in the life sciences and the required bioinformatics analysis. As a bioinformatics core facility, we provide advanced data analysis techniques.
The Wellcome Sanger Institute is one of the premier centres of genomic discovery and understanding in the world. It leads ambitious collaborations across the globe to provide the foundations for further research and transformative healthcare innovations.
The Beatson Institute is one of Cancer Research UK’s core-funded institutes. They have built an excellent reputation for basic cancer research, including world-class metabolism studies and renowned in vivo modelling of tumour growth and metastasis.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer is the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization. The objective of the IARC is to promote international collaboration in cancer research.
The BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado (CU) is an interdisciplinary hub for bioscience research and education with a focus on improving human health.
The Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology, an Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, is dedicated to basic research in diverse aspects of plant molecular biology.
IISER Mohali is an autonomous academic and research institution at Mohali, Punjab, India.
The Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (MPI-SHH) in Jena was founded in 2014 to target fundamental questions of human history and evolution since the Paleolithic.
Founded in 1831, New York University is now one of the largest private universities in the United States. Of the more than 3,000 colleges and universities in America, New York University is one of only 60 member institutions of the distinguished Association of American Universities.
The Institut Curie is a private nonprofit organization created in 1909 which combines a leading European cancer research center with a hospital group. The Institut Curie Bioinformatics platform is composed of biostatisticians and software engineers who offer a multidisciplinary expertise to support the biotechnological platforms, the research units and the hospital in their daily activities.
The nf-core project came about at the start of 2018 as the pet-project of Phil Ewels (@ewels). He's the head of the development facility at NGI Stockholm (National Genomics Infrastructure), part of SciLifeLab in Sweden.
The NGI has been developing analysis pipelines for use with it's genomics data for several years and started using a set of standards for each pipeline created. This helped other people run the pipelines on their own systems - typically Swedish research groups at first, but later on other core genomics facilities too.
As the number of people interested in these common pipelines grew, it seemed silly to keep all the pipelines under the umbrella of just SciLifeLab, complete with NGI prefixes and logos. To try to open up the effort into a truly collaborative project, nf-core was created and all relevant pipelines moved to this new GitHub Organisation.
