The CTSC can be used by investigators at SUNY-Downstate who are supported by the National Institutes of Health, other federal, state and local agencies, foundations, individual departments or by the private sector. The CTSC also supports pilot studies that may lead to future NIH or other support provided that resources for these studies are available (e.g. departmental resources, start-up funds, no cost extension funds). All studies must be IRB-approved. Investigators wishing to use the CTSC must submit an Application that will be reviewed within four weeks. If approved, you will be directed to a scheduling resource that will allow you to make requests for CTSC room reservations.
