Conducting Research at the Center
Research study protocols must be submitted through the Scientific Advisory Committee, reviewed, and approved prior to research commencement at the Center. The SAC will review the protocol to determine its scientific merit and appropriateness for the Center. Space allotment at the CNBD will then be determined on a case-by-case basis. Priority will be given to research with extramural funding, research that reflects collaborations among CNBD faculty and/or across research laboratories, and research that has is being conducted to provide pilot data for extramural grant applications. Principal Investigators who are Center members and their respective staff may reserve CNBD testing rooms and equipment.
