External User Information

The CNC is currently excepting applications for external, non-BU affiliated research projects from other Universities. This is a fee-for-service type model where you go through your own IRB, while including us as a site. We will help setup your scanning protocols, provide MRI safety training, assistance interacting with the peripherals, and instruction on on how to run the scanner.

The PI takes responsibility for the study and their study staff, and a research usage agreement is required between BU and the PI’s institution, and proof of liability insurance.

If you are invested, please reach out to the Director, Chantal Stern (chantal@bu.edu) or the Associate Director, Stephanie Mcmains (mcmains@bu.edu).

The initial form to fill out is the CNC application for use.
