All users of the core facility will be given an orientation and annual site-specific training. You will also need the appropriate animal handling, radiation safety training, etc. through Environmental Health and Safety and Campus Animal Resources. We will train users how to use the imaging systems, to prepare animals for imaging and to analyze their images.
