Additional Information for BE Faculty and Labs:

  • Who to contact: Information including a listing of staff responsibilities can be found on the BE Faculty Drive. Note: Our primary faculty have access through your SEAS Google accounts. If you have difficulty accessing or would like access through a different Google account please contact Sarah Gormley, gormley@seas.upenn.edu.
  • Copies/Printing/Posters, etc.: The SEAS Copy Center remains available to faculty for print outs, copies, poster reproductions, etc.  To contact the Copy Center please use 215-898-8115 or 215-898-7983, or email copycenter@seas.upenn.edu.
  • Packages and Mail: The SEAS Copy Center is currently managing all incoming packages and mail (copycenter@seas.upenn.edu). However this arrangement can change in the future. BE staff can also be contacted to track lost packages. Perishable packages are being stored in cold rooms until pickup can be arranged. Given the limited space and staffing in the Copy Center, all packages must be picked up the day they are delivered.
  • Ordering Supplies and Shipping Labels: To request an Office Depot order or an outgoing mail label, please use this site. Note that BE staff are not able to process labels for packages which require EHRS approval. Information on routing packages through EHRS (e.g. for dry ice, biohazard, to restricted countries) can be found here.
  • Shared Equipment: A list of shared equipment is available here. Please join BE Slack for access to shared equipment.

BE Seminars:

Bioengineering Seminars are virtual in Fall 2020. Please refer to your email or contact Katherine Sas for information to join virtually.
