Dear Microscopy Colleagues,

We are launching an updated survey of core microscopy facilities/shared
resources that aims to become a more thorough and longitudinal study.
Please take time and take part.


https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Microscopy_Facilities_Survey


While we have  participated in so many other surveys, we felt that none
adequately captured the trends in the facilities over time. Therefore we
have launched this updated survey to address this vital aspect of our
evolving works as microscopists and we will repeat the survey  every 3
years.

Results from your collective contributions will hopefully be published and
open access. Future surveys will repeat many of the same questions, to
enable them to be compared over future years to see how microscopy cores
are evolving with regards to costs, staff ratios, technologies in demand,
etc...

We will also evolve the survey as required and capture timely topics which
have a significant impact on our operation and mission, such as the impacts
Covid-19 this time around. We anticipate our community and funders will
benefit from documenting and measuring the extent and nature of the
challenges that have been encountered.

Best
Pete (and on behalf of Kirk, Zhenxi and Elango who also kindly helped set
up the logistics)

Just over a week in and has your facility joined the others that have
undertaken the survey?

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Microscopy_Facilities_Survey

It took myself 20 minutes, and the more results, the more useful this will
be to demonstrate the needs and the development of core labs.

Best
Pete
