PI Registration

Important Note for PIs with multiple labs Heading link


If you have multiple labs at UIC or other institutions, you can either (a) simply register each of your appointments as a separate lab with it’s corresponding credentials or (b) email to have those labs created for you on one set of credentials.
For example, if a PI has an appointment with UIC as well as VA, they need to:

a. Register a lab for UIC with UIC credentials and for VA with VA credentials.


b. Email to have their two labs associated with one log in (usually UIC log in)
