Investigators with funded research studies using the CIR will be allowed to perform test runs of their protocol at no charge to ensure that all hardware and software are functioning properly and that quality data can be obtained. Test scans are allowable only for new research studies, unless the scan protocol changes in order to achieve the research goals. Every investigator is allowed to run test scans under the agreement that no research data are obtained from these test scans and used in reports or publications arising from the research.
Investigators wishing to apply for scanning must submit the following forms to the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) for review. Please use the documents below to complete the application process. Submit completed proposals or direct any questions to Elizabeth Fugate (firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-558-7174). The Scientific Advisory Committee of the CIR will review all proposals.
Investigators wishing to obtain pilot data for a research proposal that do not have funding can apply to the CIR's SAC for feasibility scan approval. Applicants must identify a CIR collaborator or a collaborator from a list of designated outside collaborators. Applicants must complete the feasibility proposal form. Applicants must submit the feasibility proposal form accompanied by a 1-2 page summary of the proposed project, as well as the IRB protocol (approved or submitted) to be reviewed by the Director of the CIR and one or more outside reviewers.
Investigators with funded research proposals must apply to the CIR's SAC for scan approval. The research proposal form, the request for services (RFS) form, the IRB protocol (approved or submitted), and a description of the imaging methodologies to be employed must accompany your proposal to the CIR Scientific Advisory Committee for approval of your imaging project.
