Project ProposalsCollaborate

Anyone interested in collaborating with the Mouse Phase 1 Unit should first contact the operations director, David Darr, to discuss possible project opportunities. The next step is to prepare your project ideas and present during one of our scheduled meetings. We meet every Monday morning at 11 am in Lineberger Cancer Center room 32-001.


While we are always open to authorship opportunities not all manuscripts generated with MP1U’s help require one of our staff or directors listed as an author. However, we do request that you mention us in the following ways:

  1. In the methods section where you discuss animal handling: e.g. “Mice were housed in the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center's Mouse Phase I Unit (MP1U) and observed for tumors as per standard practice. Therapeutic studies and assessment for response were performed in the MP1U.”
  2. In the acknowledgements: “We thank the directors and personnel of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center's Mouse Phase One Unit (MP1U) for assistance with animal handling, therapeutic studies and tumor serial assessment. Work in the MP1U was supported by the University Cancer Research Fund.”
