Tuesday May 19, 2020 update:
SUMS is currently able to support essential approved research projects; please contact us at email@example.com to discuss and make arrangements.
For other projects, please continue getting in touch with SUMS via the firstname.lastname@example.org email. Ideally project discussions and planning will be completed ahead of time, so that we all can hit the ground running when restrictions are eased.
As you will be experiencing in your own labs, operations will be quite different under physical distancing. Initially, the only in-person interactions will be for transferring samples to SUMS; SOPs will be provided. When the open access lab reopens, it will be operated under a drop-off model for at least the initial stages of the campus research restart. There will be no fee changes nor additional charges for this service.
