Shared Resources FAQ
Recharge amount varies each month depending on the expenses paid on the general ledger for the particular charge period. The calculation formula is as follows:
(Total expenses spent on GL for month / Total recharge units)= Amount per unit
(PI’s assigned unit(s) x amount per unit)= PI’s total recharge amount
The wet lab space is assigned as a number of “kneeholes”. Kneehole refers to a lab desk (typically 36” to 48” long) plus associated bench space (typically about 5’ to 6’ long) used by one person. One lab bench typically accommodates two researchers with one 36” to 48” desk at each end of a long 10’-12’ shared bench.
Kneeholes are assigned to each PI by the Chair of your Department, or by Dr. Frank McCormick, Cancer Center Director. The number of kneehole(s) varies amongst PIs. If the number of kneehole(s) has changed, the PI needs to notify the shared service manager to make any necessary adjustment.
