    unwavering support

    Dear friends,

    Below there is a sentence which is intended to express gratitude to a person who helped a lot to do something:

    "The team of authors would like to cordially thank Dr. Wan for priceless help and unwavering support during research and our work on this manuscript."

    What do you think of the word "unwavering"? Does it sound natural in this context?

    Thanks

    It sounds OK to me. You could also use "unfaltering".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: unwavering support

    Can "unfailing" and "unswerving" also be used?

    Yes, but the other two are more natural for me.
