Facility Access

If you are working with human/animal subjects, your group must have an approved IRB/IACUC protocol letter.

If you are NOT currently faculty, staff or a student of the University of Florida, you must be approved as a UF affiliate/volunteer before applying for onsite access. This requires a clearly defined purpose of a your involvement, supervision, and record of activities.

Remember to acknowledge the AMRIS Facility funding in all publications and presentations that report your NMR/MRI usage at the AMRIS Facility. Some systems also have additional grant-specific citation requirements.

Other topics beyond this access procedure may be found on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. You can also contact the Office Manager for more information.

To obtain access to the AMRIS facility, you must complete the numbered steps below:
