CEOAS Xpert Xchange

Need help in the lab? In the field? On the computer?  Don't forget to check the CEOAS Xpert Xchange!

The Xpert Xchange is an availability calendar of CEOAS technicians (FRAs).  The goal of the webpage is to match available technicians with PIs seeking assistance. This webpage was set up in response to needs expressed by the CEOAS FRA community and faculty.

Technicians:  Use of the site is completely voluntary; technicians are welcome to register and add or change their availability and skill information at any time.
Professors:  The webpage lists available personnel and their skills.  To discuss potential collaboration, please contact the technician directly.

 A link to the CEOAS Xpert Xchange can be found on the “Faculty & Staff” webpage on the CEOAS website.

 For more information, questions, or suggestions, please contact Jasmine Nahorniak
