This proposal, submitted by the USP School of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of São Paulo (FCF- USP) comprises the purchase of large-capacity devices. The machinery will be installed at the same faculty aiming to create a new Multi-User Laboratory. The FCF- USP is committed to implementing policies that promote research activities, development of human resources, knowledge transfer, and cooperation among researchers working in different areas of the Pharmaceutical Sciences. Therefore, the application submitted to the “FAPESP Multi-User Equipment Program” is based on the creation of a novel FCF- USP Multi-User Laboratory that could be used by both internal researchers and external collaborators, contributing to scientific and technological advances and meeting federal scientific and technological development policies. The FCF- USP Multi-User Laboratory will comprise the following equipments: 1-microPET Scan ALbira, Carestream; 2- In vivo Imaging System MSFX-PRO, Carestream. In an initial phase, users of the FCF- USP MultiUser Laboratory will share two equipments as described in this proposal. This practice will be later extended to other equipments, including those yet to be acquired, assuming that equipments in question are suited to such sharing. The creation of a Multi-User Laboratory would optimize the use and the maintenance of equipments, as well as improve overall layout and consolidate qualified technical staff expertise to support scientific and technological research at the FCF- USP.
