The scheduling of scan time on NNC supported instruments is done through a web-based calendar system. A separate calendar is available for each instrument and includes quotas and transaction logging. The calendar automatically releases scan time on a weekly basis. NINDS grant holders are given priority to instruments through prescheduling and extra interventions from the Administrative Core’s Associate Director, who is also the calendar administrator. Users studying patient populations with specific scan time needs are scheduled manually. Weekend time is also scheduled in blocks by special arrangement.
For all questions about the scheduling calendar, contact Margaret Ryan at 215-573-8486.
