VIIBRE Lab Access

Access to VIIBRE Labs

To improve lab safety and help manage resources, VIIBRE requires that all lab users follow the steps outlined below to gain access to labs.   Safety and following safety protocols must be kept mind at all times, and resources must be managed in such a way that every project has the ability to utilize resources without interfering with the research of other projects .

Before working in some VIIBRE labs, specific training is required.
