UAMS researchers work in labs across campus in a variety of buildings. Many are located in Biomedical Research buildings I & II. The following are contact links and descriptions of who, what, where, and when to call them.

  • Building Hallway Use

    • Abandoned items in the halls are not just unsightly, they are unsafe. Corridors and hallways in research buildings must remain clear to provide safe egress during emergencies. If an exit route is obstructed by equipment or boxes, someone needing to exit quickly could easily trip and injure themselves and possibly others. Hallway items must not: 1) clog the flow of people entering and/or exiting the building, 2) reduce the 36” state mandated hallway access width, or 3) create a fire hazard.
    • If chairs, file cabinets, desks, tables, coffee makers, etc. are no longer operational or needed, have your department contact Operational Support Services to schedule surplus property pickup (501-686-5804).
  • Bulletin Boards

    • Research events are posted in the elevators in the Biomedical I & II bldgs. and others around campus. Occasionally, folks feel the need to add art to the cork and posters. Just a reminder that these boards are UAMS property and any defacement has harsh penalties (i.e. termination). See policy 11.2.07.
  • Research Freezers (-80 degrees)

    • There are dedicated circuits to all the -80 freezers in the common equipment rooms/labs
      and freezers are wired with monitoring alarms.
    • Each freezer must have:
      • up-to-date emergency contact name and after hours phone numbers posted on freezer
      • alarm parameters on the unit set for the tolerance of the products stored
    • Contact Engineering & Operations (501-526-0000 call center) if you need to:
      • move a unit
      • add or dispose of a unit
      • have concerns about power or temperature issues
      • need to update lab/freezer contact information
    • If you are leaving campus, make sure your department knows the disposition of all freezers, samples, and chemicals in the lab(s).
  • Research Poster Boards

    • The UAMS Division of Research has a number of poster boards for use on campus for highlighting research events. If your college would like to reserve these boards for an event, the following steps apply:
      • Contact Janice L. Rhodes, 501-686-8899, email Janice to check for scheduling availability and to be sure the number of boards needed are available.
      • Poster board move reservations (to/from event location) must be made via the Operational Support Services online move team form.
      • Research poster boards are cork and tape may not be used to affix posters. Push pins must be provided by the user.
