Getting Started




UMN and National Resources

Welcome to the Center for Immunology (CFI)

Before you start working at the bench there are things you need to do to satisfy safety and security regulations at the U of M.  Once you have finished all the required training modules present the completed list and a copy of your training records to your lab manager as it will serve as the IACUC required staff training record.  We need to keep a record of training for every person in the lab.  


The University of Minnesota Libraries is here for YOU!  You will find an array of services, resources and collections available, both online and in-person, for both work and play. Learn more about what the University of Minnesota Libraries offers.
