Closure for Non-essential Research

March 20, 2020

To follow Yale guidance on COVID-19, we are taking proactive measures to protect our users and staff from the virus. Although our operations for non-essential research have been suspended, we are available to support investigators who are conducting University defined critical research. For instance, studies related to the causes, mechanisms, and potential therapeutic trials of viral (COVID-19 or similar) infection.

If you have imaging needs that fall into the above categories, please contact al.mennone@yale.edu; I will do my best to assist you in this regard.
