How do I set up an initial consultation?
To set up an initial consultation, call (414) 955-2448 and speak with the imaging specialist, Suresh Kumar, PhD, to set up a time to discuss your project. Initial consultations are not charged, however, other training and consultations will be charged on a fee-for-service basis. When needed, Paula North, MD, PhD, director, can meet with you to discuss experimental and methodological details, authorize after-hour usage, or apply for Children's Research Institute subsidy of fees for unfunded investigators.
Can you train our technician?
Unassisted use of Imaging Core equipment requires prescribed training, demonstration of competency and approval by the core director. Training charges vary for each piece of equipment and may include more than one session. See equipment and services for training prices. Group training is available.
How do I get to the Imaging Core?
When coming to the laboratory for the first time, please call (414) 955-2448 in advance to ensure someone is available to give you access to the facility. During normal work hours, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., enter the building using the central connector located from The Medical College of Wisconsin. Take the elevators to the fourth floor. Once off the elevator, use the phone on the wall outside to call one of the following extensions:
- Main line: 2448.
- If there is no answer: (414) 324-1289.
Once established as a user, badge access may be provided.
How do I get access to the Imaging Core?
Access will be granted to principal investigators with a general laboratory badge provided by the Imaging Core director, Paula North, MD, PhD. The primary investigator is responsible for the security of this badge when checking it out to other laboratory staff. If the badge is lost or misplaced, you must contact the Imaging Core and Security immediately and let them know which badge has been lost.
How does billing work?
All users of the core will be individually invoiced. Invoices are generated monthly (electronically or hard copy) and it is expected that all invoices be paid within 30 days. Please sign, date and fill in the account details on the original invoice and return to Micah Tesdall at CRI/TBRC C4495. If you have questions, call (414) 955-2448.
