New online research application portal – eResearchWithUs

NSW Health Pathology is making it easier to apply for our research services with a new eResearchWithUs digital portal.

“This inno­v­a­tive, user-friend­ly dig­i­tal plat­form is a sig­nif­i­cant step for­ward in how we sup­port researchers,” says Dr Shaun Roman, Asso­ciate Direc­tor of NSW Health Pathology.

“This new dig­i­tal por­tal not only stream­lines the appli­ca­tion process but also rein­forces our com­mit­ment to advanc­ing sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge and ulti­mate­ly improv­ing the health and well-being of the com­mu­ni­ty in part­ner­ship with the broad­er research indus­try,” Dr Roman said.

The por­tal allows researchers to apply for access to a wide range of essen­tial bio-spec­i­mens, such as tis­sue, blood, cells, urine, DNA/RNA, or pro­tein, as well as var­i­ous research ser­vices like sam­ple col­lec­tion and pathol­o­gy or foren­sic test­ing, as well as data only requests.

To ensure opti­mal ser­vice deliv­ery, local Research Coor­di­na­tors will thor­ough­ly review each appli­ca­tion. They will care­ful­ly assess the research pro­jec­t’s fea­si­bil­i­ty and offer appli­cants a tai­lored quote and research agree­ment if the lab has capac­i­ty to pro­vide the service.

“We want to be able to pro­vide you with an appli­ca­tion form that only asks you for the infor­ma­tion that is rel­e­vant to your research request,” Bente Talseth-Palmer, NSW Health Pathol­o­gy’s Research Strat­e­gy Lead, said, high­light­ing the por­tal’s user-friend­ly design.

The eRe­search­With­Us por­tal uses smart log­ic that min­imis­es requests for addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion, effec­tive­ly pre­vent­ing unnec­es­sary delays in the research approval process.

“It means few­er fol­low-up ques­tions and requests for more doc­u­ments, pre­vent­ing unnec­es­sary delays, so we deliv­er a bet­ter ser­vice to researchers,” says Kar­la Jerez, who is one of NSW Health Pathol­o­gy’s ded­i­cat­ed Research Coordinators.

NSW Health Pathol­o­gy aspires to be at the fore­front of trans­la­tion­al research, where sci­en­tif­ic dis­cov­er­ies can swift­ly make their way from the lab­o­ra­to­ry to ben­e­fit the broad­er com­mu­ni­ty. By pro­vid­ing researchers with eas­i­er access to their exten­sive research ser­vices through eRe­search­With­Us, we are fos­ter­ing an envi­ron­ment for col­lab­o­ra­tion and innovation.
