Moving Science Forward

Tools and Resources for Your Return to the Lab

Returning to the lab is exciting, but your “new normal” may look quite different than your past “normal”. Due to new health and safety precautions, you may have to alter your work schedule and limit the time you physically spend in the lab. How do you stay productive and move your research forward with these limitations in effect?

Now is the time to assess your usual routines and optimize for productivity. Consider this an opportunity to make changes to move your research forward with greater efficiency, reproducibility, and relevance than before. As Scientists Helping Scientists, we are here to help you overcome challenges and further scientific progress.
