Projects begin with a discussion. This is usually between the facility director and the researcher and ideally their mentor/PI. The goal of the discussion is to talk over the science questions of the project. Instrumentation needs and protocols come after that discussion.
The first decision is will the work be done independently or as a service. If independent then we will arrange training. Training is always one-on-one at a mutually agreeable time. Also the training is carried out with the users real samples. If service will be used then we will arrange which facility staff member will do the work and schedule receipt of samples.
