We have now re-opened this survey so that we can increase the level of input from the community. Forum now closes on 2/28!

What tools and technology do you need to access in the next 5 years to support your research? What expertise do you need access to in order to take your research program to the next level? 

The Research Resource Program seeks to identify the needs for investment in UCSF's Shared Research Facilities ("Cores") over the next 5-10 years. To help with this process we are asking you to reflect on how you anticipate your research changing over the next 5-10 years and then tell us what new or additional services, technologies, training, equipment, etc. you will need to support your evolving research. Share your ideas on the Open Proposal Forum, here: http://open-proposals.ucsf.edu/rrp/research-feedback-forum

Your ideas will help create a core research infrastructure in the future that is both responsive and supportive of your research needs.
