Following instrument training, make sure you get access to all the instrument areas.  There is nothing worse than your experiment being ready to be run and you cannot get into the room.  Contact the people below, and copy & paste into an email, providing the following 5 pieces of information:

  1. Whose lab do you work in?
  2. Why do you need access to the facility?
  3. How long you need access for (end date and year)?
  4. Provide your UCSF Employee ID number (9 digits).
