collaboration

CIVM encourages a broad range of collaborative projects

STEPS to initiate a collaboration

  1. Download and complete a Project Form
    • Most important: include contact and funding information, 1-2 paragraphs to briefly describe goals, type of imaging that may meet your needs, and number of animals
    • Return form to Sally Zimney (919 684-7758). CIVM faculty will review your information and arrange a meeting to develop appropriate protocols. For example, the challenges of imaging a 25-g mouse are substantial, so the protocols are considerably different than those used in a clinical environment.
  2. Important: for preliminary data needed to submit a grant, provide at least 1 month lead time prior to submission

REQUIREMENTS - Before a project can start

We try to accommodate as many users as possible, but our resources are limited. We would like to help, but we cannot start without the following:
  • Completed and accepted project form
  • Meeting with a CIVM faculty member to 1st discuss your needs, then properly plan your project

REQUIREMENTS - For resulting publications

  • Acknowledgement of CIVM's federal / other grants
    • Sally Zimney (919 684-7758) can supply our grant numbers, as well as the process for mandatory deposit of the paper in the NIH public access system (PMC)
  • Opportunity to review the paper before submission
  • Final copy of published manuscript and figures for our records
