Resource Fees

Please contact the TMII Director ( when planning the budget for a new study or with any questions.  

User fees are calculated to cover the operating and maintenance costs of the instruments and related Core expenses. These rates are determined and periodically reviewed by the Dean’s Office and adjusted to reflect the actual costs.  User fees include technical support for operation of imaging equipment.

For Internal Mount Sinai users, resource usage time is compiled from the web-based scheduling system and charged directly to your account on a monthly basis.   Any questions on the charges should be addressed to the TMII Director.
