The core facility will be available to any qualified researcher across BUMC. All persons will be trained on the instruments and qualified as independent after evaluation by staff. Abuse of the instrument will result in lack of access. Outside users will be allowed but priority will be given to BUMC users. There will be a cost differential for BUMC users (short and long term) versus external users. An Imaging course has been offered yearly in the Spring Semester and will be offered again in 09 – GMS CM-766.
