Welcome to the UoM Research Platform Booking System iLab

What is iLab

iLab is the UoM supported booking system for effective and efficient research platform management. It enables users to search and book research equipment/services, and provides a platform for managers to administer services and analytical reporting. Its functionality includes calendars for reserving specific UoM platforms, access control for sensitive or validated equipment, time and cost-tracking against bookings and a number of other reports.

The University of Melbourne Research Infrastructure

The University of Melbourne has a strong and proud tradition of world-class research and development. We are a committed partner in diverse research efforts, both academic and commercial. Underpinning our success is cutting-edge research infrastructure, which drives innovation, promotes multidisciplinary approaches and fosters collaboration with industry and other partners.

Our research infrastructure platforms enable research that produces cultural, economic and health benefits. Our platforms cover a wide range of disciplines and technologies, from advanced microscopy to cultural informatics, and our specialist platform experts provide distinctive capabilities.
We can find or develop a solution for your specific research challenge, offer insights, suggest new ways of working and create opportunities for development and discovery. From defining the method to analysing the data, and with training options, our platform experts can work with you to achieve trusted research results.
