All investigators budgeting for R01 grants or industry-funded studies should include the MRI Center for Biomedical Imaging user fee of $5,000.00. The user fee helps to fund additional hardware and/or software that is not budgeted for throughout the year. User fees can be used to fund scanner upgrades that are needed for various types of imaging projects. This fund will help to reduce or eliminate the need for investigators to rely on their department to pay for scanner upgrades.
