How to apply for a project

All you need to start a project at the 7T
Before starting a project, you are more than welcome to discuss it with anyone from the 7T facility!

Due to scanner availability, no new projects can start until January 2020. You can still plan your projects and apply for time!

  2. The PI and requests a start up meeting withboel [dot] hansson [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se ( Boel Hansson ), to document project details in a "book of methods".
  3. Arrange for training of participants. To use the facility, a certificate of authorization is required ("assistant license"). To scan, a certificate of competence ("scanning license") is needed.
    The assistant license consists of a safety training, information of routines and a tour of the facility. This takes 2-3 hours, upcoming occasions are advertised on the events page.
    The scanning license requires scanning together with 7T staff, and ends witht a "drivers test". These are individually planned.
