Preclinical Imaging Laboratory Advisory Committee

Our advisory committee is composed of members of NYU Langone leadership and meets semi-annually to review the following:

  • usage statistics
  • budget and financial oversight
  • hardware performance status and integration with other technologies
  • scientific performance and productivity, including grant funding and the number of abstracts and papers emerging from the use of our instruments
  • outreach to possible new users

Our lab director is a nonvoting member of the committee, as is required by the National Institutes of Health funding guidelines on shared instrumentation and resources.
