Rules and guidelines for service tasks
There are several (at least two) options how the CCBP may support your research:
1. We instruct and train you in designing and application of a specific screening technology. Thereafter you will be able to carry out the experiments yourself and you may want to use our instruments (microplate readers), material (chemical libraries) and lab space or you may want to use your own equipment and laboratory. In any case, your experimental contribution is mandatory for any larger screening campaign.
2. We perform small-scale experiments for you, in case of a focused question/problem related to chemical biology or biochemistry that can be solved with our instruments or tools. We are open for internal and external collaborations and all sorts of experimental and scientific challenges.
How to get a collaboration or service task started?
1. Feel free to informally approach any member of CCBP laboratory to explore whether and how we can support your research.
2. Requests for service support require authorization by a group leader.
3. The service request should be briefly described and send to CCBP (Erich Kombrink).
4. Based on the provided information we will decide if and how we can manage the request.
5. In a personal meeting we will discuss and elaborate with you an experimental plan and time schedule.
6. For mutual information and to ensure progress of the project we will arrange frequent discussions about results, their evaluation and further steps to be taken.
7. Once you support request is finished we will provide you with a written report, which hopefully will be useful for a subsequent publication.
8. Consider that you have to cover the expenses for special chemicals (new chemical libraries, radioactivity, expensive dyes, external services, etc.).
