NOTICE: Core Membership Changes 

Effective July 1, 2018:

1) The Core will accept new Major User membership based on newly awarded NINDS R01 or equivalent (U01, R35, R37, P01, P50, U54, DP1, DP2). Major Users receive a discount in recharge rates when using core instruments. 

2) The Core will increase the Core Member User rates from the current $18/hr (confocal rate) to $20/hr. UCSD rates will stay the same. This change reflects the rapid expansion of our major user base in the past several years, and the continuing decrease in the maximum allowable budget for NINDS P30s, which has been used to subsidize the discounted rates for core members.

All labs or companies must properly cite our grant (NINDS P30 NS047101)
