Shared research core facilities serve a crucial role in supporting research and training for their respective institutions. The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) is working to document and understand institutional responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic from shared resource core facilities perspectives. The goal is to create a resource to inform response and continuity planning for cores to sustain future emergencies. To this end ABRF has recently performed a survey of core facility Research Ramp-Down that occurred due to the pandemic. Now they are reaching out to request that we assist with the follow-up survey, which focuses upon the core facility Research Ramp-Up that followed relaxation of restrictions that had been imposed.
Please complete the survey by Monday, August 31. It’ll only take about 10 minutes.
Please feel free to share this survey with others you feel may be able to contribute voice to this survey. The results of both surveys will be aggregated and data will be anonymised for further dissemination via manuscript and presentation at future meetings.
Thank you for your support of this very valuable exercise.
