Scheduling, Rates & Policies

Scheduling
Schedule time on the Titan Krios by contacting the Operations Director, Duncan Sousa (Phone/Text, dsousa1@jhmi.edu).
Johns Hopkins Users:
Scheduling for Johns Hopkins users will require an iLab account.
External Users:
Scheduling can only be done by contacting Operations Director, Duncan Sousa (Phone/Text, e-mail). The first stage is a quick discussion about the project and whether our resources can accomodate your needs. A mutually agreeable date will be set for the experiment. Users are welcome to come in person to assist with data collection, but shipping the samples via a dry shipper is high recommended (e.g., the CX100). Once data collection is complete, users will have 3 weeks to upload their data from our servers.

Funding
Funding is available for faculty associated with the School of Medicine through the Core Coins mechanism. Applicants will need to demonstrate their project has scientific merit and facility time will not be wasted. Core Coins are limited to available Titan Krios time, however all reasonable requests will be funded as long as there is available Titan Time.  Applicants should e-mail Dr. Sousa or Prof. Berger with their request.

Unexpected Downtime
Should there be any unexpected downtime that prevents data collection during your Titan Krios session (autoloader errors, database failures, etc.), we will reschedule you for the soonest mutually available time and your samples will be prioritized for any time that opens up from cancelations.
