Project Set Up

The CBI welcomes all MUSC researchers! To begin a study with the CBI, you must first have IRB approval for human research or IACUC approval for preclinical research. Next, call 843-876-2460 to obtain login information for Calpendo, our online scheduling system, to use CBI equipment and facilities. If you are new to Calpendo, please review our Calpendo instruction guide (PDF). After Calpendo access has been obtained, please download the new project instructions (PDF) for step by step directions on how to proceed along with the new project request form you will need to fill out. If you need assistance at any time during this process or have any questions, please call 843-876-2460.

The CBI has created a process map to better understand the steps involved and the people responsible for bringing a new study online. Download process map (PDF).
