COBRE Cell and Molecular Biology Core Facility:
Policies and Procedures
These policies are subject to change without notice. Please review them carefully. Failure to follow these policies will result in the loss of facility privileges.
- Project initiation, as well as any changes in project direction, must be made by the Principle Investigator through the Core Director. Please contact Dr. Sheryl White at 656-2007 to initiate your project.
- All users must sign in on any equipment having sign up/log sheets.
- All users must be trained to use facility equipment by either the Core Director (Dr. Sheryl White, 656-2007) or technicians (Thomm Buttolph, 656-4549 and Edward Zelazny, 656-4549). It is not acceptable for users to train others on core equipment.
- Users should bring any reagents/materials required for their experiments to the facility, unless prior arrangements have been made. No chemicals are to be left in the facility without permission.
- "Borrowing" of reagents/solutions/materials from the facility without express permission will not be tolerated.
- All users must leave the equipment and benches in clean condition. Please report any unacceptable conditions immediately to facility personnel.
- Any users requiring the use of the radiation room must sign up to use the room, must be certified for handling radioactive materials, and must obey all radiation room policies.
- All publications and presentations containing data obtained using COBRE
facility equipment or resources must be properly acknowledged as shown below:
This publication was made possible by NIH Grant Numbers 5 P30 RR032135 from the COBRE Program of the National Center for Research Resources and 8 P30 GM 103498 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of NIH.
This is a free facility for everyone at the University of Vermont; however, preference will be given to the principle investigators listed on the COBRE grant, followed by members of the neuroscience community and finally, the university as a whole. Check in advance when planning experiments to determine space and equipment availability.
