LabArchives Awards $250,000 in 50 Grants
LabArchives awards 50th developmental grant to provide financial support to Principal Investigators in their management of research data, collaboration with other investigators.
CARLSBAD, CA (PRWEB) AUGUST 03, 2016 — LabArchives®, the leading electronic laboratory notebook (ELN), today announced that it has awarded its 50th ELN Developmental Lab Grant. The grants, valued at $10,000 each, provide five years of user licenses to working laboratory groups with a maximum of 10 users. Grants are limited to a maximum of two per institution. The applications process is very short, typically a four week turnaround. Recipients include labs at John Hopkins University, University of Minnesota, University of Bern, The Ohio State University, University of Oxford, Vanderbilt University, Nanyang Technological University, and University of Melbourne.
The purpose of the development grant is to provide financial support to Principal Investigators in their management of research data, collaboration with other investigators, as well as to obtain contributing feedback on the use of LabArchives Professional Edition over a 5-year period. This LabArchives 5-year user group study provides “real world” use case feedback. Some observations from recent grant recipient reports and interviews:
”It makes it easy to share results of procedures.”
“Allows for improved communication, and makes it easier to retain documents. Nothing is lost from LabArchives…I would have a hard time going back to a paper notebook now!”
“Allows quick and efficient communication with colleagues, the value of which I initially underestimated.”
“When someone leaves the lab, there’s much more convenient access to their data.”
“Easy to do a daily log of work and connect it into the context of a project. Which allows for easy monitoring of user activity.“
The LabArchives Grant program has enabled over 250 participants to access the system more than 100,000 times since September of 2014.
