Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What kind of facilitation is available?
We will work with investigators to address individual needs and connect them with appropriate imaging experts for collaborative assistance with the design and planning of medical imaging research.

2. Who is eligible to receive facilitation services?
Facilitation is available for clinical and translational investigators in the Harvard University community (graduate & medical students, fellows, and faculty members).

3. What kind of facilitation is not available?
Harvard Catalyst facilitators are not generally available or appropriate as key personnel on projects. Although they can assist in the identification of appropriately trained individuals to provide a wide variety of support, facilitators will not provide:

  • ongoing support for the implementation of new studies or the analysis of data from existing studies.
  • in-depth analysis of data. For example, assistance regarding substantial statistical services (power calculations, data analysis, etc.) should be obtained through the CTSC Biostatistics consultation service.

4. What costs are associated with facilitation?
Facilitation is provided free of charge to Harvard investigators.

5. How do I request the Facilitation service?
To initiate the Facilitation service, complete and submit the Imaging Facilitation Form (web form). After your request is submitted, you will be contacted to clarify the nature of your request.
