One of Dartmouth's most unique academic features is the availability of the scanner for academic use. While many schools have scanners, few have the availability to graduate and undergraduates alike that DBIC has. Several professors, including Professors Kelley, Tse, and Whalen, perform research using through DBIC. As an undergraduate, getting involved in research with a professor is often as easy as contacting them. From there you are free to take it where ever you like, including being trained on scanning subjects in our scanner.
As a trained DBIC scanner, you will be able to: load subjects into the scanner, assist graduate and undergraduate researchers carry out their research in the scanner and you will be able to develop and, with a professor's assistance, carry out your own research. This easy access to training is a unique and wonderful opportunity, and a highlight of DBIC.
Please see the Training and Certification page for complete details on the training process. For information on upcoming safety classes, please contact Tammy Moran. If you are already safety trained and are ready to be a scan buddy, please see the Scheduling Magnet Time page for information on how to access the DBIC schedule.
