The investigator submits a "Request for Services" form (available by email request); p39 for recharge and (depending on request) IRB approval is also required.
Drs. Dry and French are available to meet with each investigator to assist in "fine-tuning" critical details of the research requirements, optimal tissue sources (e.g., surgery, autopsy), and the method of preparation. Contact Dr. Magyar (email@example.com) to arrange consultations for digital image analysis.
