Facility Access

Please note that any user working with human/animal subjects 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 onsite access will be considered. This requires a clearly defined purpose of a your involvement, supervision, and record of activities.

Other topics beyond this access procedure may be found on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page, or are likely addressed throughout this website. Any additional questions concerning facility access may be directed to the Research Coordinator.

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

  1. Read the AMRIS safety handout
  2. Attend an AMRIS Facility general safety training: Request safety orientation
  3. Register your MagLab User profile
  4. If you are the PI, you must establish a project billing code:
    • If you already have funding, complete a billing code form and email it to the Office Manager
    • If you are seeking MagLab funding (pilot study), submit an NHMFL proposal to the MagLab
    • Please have all students and other project collaborators register a MagLab profile, so they can be added to your project code (even if they will not be present at the AMRIS Facility)
  5. If you will be using 3T human or 7T / 11T preclinical imagers:
  6. Contact AMRIS Facility staff (see table below) about system-specific project requirements

After ALL steps above are complete:

  1. Apply for a key fob, and after hours access if needed, after completion of your general safety training and MagLab User profile. You will be contacted by the Research Coordinator to pick up your key fob from LG-115 when it is ready.
  2. Submit a magnet time request for system time to complete your research
  3. 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)
