General lab policies

Administrative requests

The assigned administrative assistant for the lab (currently Diana Savastio) should be the default person to send any administrative requests. In the past, we have had issues where requests were coming from multiple members of our lab and/or to multiple administrative staff, which was not being sufficiently mindful of time and busy schedules of the administrative staff. Therefore, in general, you should not directly contact other departmental administrators with requests unless directed by the administrative assistant or Dr. Poldrack. However, there may be exceptions to this that justify contacting other staff directly (e.g., CNI-related questions directly to CNI staff like Laima Baltusis).


New members of the lab will be provided with a detailed list of onboarding procedures as well as access to the lab’s Google Drive which contains internal lab documentation.
