COVID-19 Updates for the Shared Resource Labs
The Shared Resource Laboratories continue to support UR researchers following the guidelines that have been setup to prioritize research. As was detailed in an email sent to the research community. No new research may be initiated on-site, effective immediately. Only the following research will be permitted to continue on-site:
1. Approved* research on COVID-19;
2. Approved* therapeutic clinical trials; and
3. Approved* ongoing essential experiments (e.g., long-term animal studies needing harvesting of tissues).
To facilitate and document the need and approval for the use of an SRL, please use the following form: Resource Request
Once we have the complete approvals, the appropriate director will be in touch with you to schedule access.
The URMC is working to establish a biobank for COVID19 samples to support future research efforts. We are looking for scientists willing to help process these samples. If you are interested, please fill out this form here: Volunteer Form
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 585-690-5157
A Message from the Director
The Shared Resource Laboratories provide an extensive spectrum of trained personnel, innovative, leading edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Our highly skilled and continually trained technical personnel provide the proper and timely expertise to bridge the gaps between sophisticated instrumentation and biology. We favor an integrated approach to research yielding more insight and an answer to today's increasingly complex questions.
Whatever it is you need to enhance your research, the Shared Resources Labs has it, will get it, will do it, or will invent it.
