Terms & Conditions

• Anyone who plans to work in the MIC is required to have a safety training session before they can be issued keys and use the facility. Contact Grant Dagliyan (dagliyan@usc.edu) to set up an appointment.


• It is the MIC policy that investigators or a representative form their lab be accessible by phone, if not present onsite, during the imaging session to make any procedural decisions that might affect their study results.


• Investigators who use PET, US, CT or the crystat unassisted must disinfect the instrument after use and clean up after themselves. Failure to comply this requirement may result in loss of priviliged use of the instrument.


• Investigators are required to provide the MIC with a digital or a hard copy of their approved Animal Use and Care Protocol and any relevant amendments in a timely manner. This information will remain confidential.


• It is MIC policy that the investigator acknowledges the MIC, and credits any federal support the MIC receives, in publications of studies conducted at the MIC. Contact Peter Conti, Director of MIC(pconti@usc.edu) for federal grant numbers or assistance with wording. We also require the investigators provide the MIC with a copy of the published article, preferable digitally, so that we can include the citation in annual reports to funding agencies, and in the list of publications we maintain on the MIC website.


• Laboratory personnel who have an accident or injure themselves while working in the MIC must immediately notify Grant Dagliyan, MIC Lab Manager, Peter Conti, Director of MIC, or MIC staff if the former are not available.
