2.E.1 Short descriptoin of project(s) and type(s) of work

Bacterial growth, protein isolation and characterization.

2.E.2 Does your work involve human subjects?No
2.E.3 If not requesting ongoing access, list date ranges for which you are requesting access

I am requesting on-going access.

2.G.1.a Describe any scheduling tools you will use to control access to particular rooms and appratus?

We will have a shared calendar for ALL users of All common space (e.g. 2033, 3025, 3027, etc) which was set up by IT entitled: Research Activity planner; found on Outlook

2.G.1.b If you intend to use pre-defined rotations or shifts, attach (at end) or provide below an example schedule

Currently, usage of the primary research space for my program (2033) has fewer users than the maximum occupancy (6), consequently we do not require rotations. However, if the number of users in 2033 exceeds the maximum occupancy the PIs (Vincent, Rule, Affara) will meet regularly to discuss how this will be accomplished and we will update facilities on the plan.
With other common spaces, the number of individuals permitted per room will be placed on the front door. Occupancy numbers as determined by Facilities are as follows: Lab 3025: 9 persons, Lab 3027: 4 persons. Entry will not occur if the rooms are at capacity.

2.G.1.c Are there any circumstances where personnel CANNOT maintain physical distancing for short periods of time?No
2.G.2 Anyone who is sick must stay home
  • Yes, I affirm
2.G.3 Face masks
  • Yes, I affirm
2.G.4 Individual hygiene & hand-washing
  • Yes, I affirm
2.G.5 Facility entrance/exit logging processes

All users of research space will enter their planned occupancy in a shared calendar, they will revise the calendar if their plans change. We have discussed with facilities using the normal door card scanners to generate an independent log of room access.

3 Ramp-down and temporary suspension of work plans

Bacteria will be killed by bleach, protein stored at +5C, DNA samples frozen at -20 or -80. Ramp down time < 24 hours for all of these. See additional features common to all investigators in the uploaded document (section 18).

4 Regular reporting details
