Once a User account is created and approved investigators need to create a Project. Please log into Calpendo and go to Project->Create Project and fill out all fields. Several of the fields are mandatory. Make sure that your CMRF Account number is entered. Only include resources on which you have been trained. These will be confirmed by your CMRF staff contact. Email them if you have questions regarding resource access.Once that is approved you will be able to reserve CMRF Resources on your own without going through your CMRF staff contact.

Billing is based on the reservation time or instrument usage time, whichever is longer with a minimum reservation time of 30 minutes.
