For reasons of safety and security, access to the Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry (CBC) is restricted by security card-readers, to prevent unauthorized persons from entering the laboratories. Students and staff members who want to work in any CBC laboratory must seek permission from the laboratory's Principal Investigator or Laboratory Manager before entering.
The procedure for requesting access is detailed below:
STEP 1: Read the SPMS Safety Manual
