Virtual Vivarium Tour
"The Virtual Vivarium" was developed at MGH as a tool for acclimating new researchers to the processes and expectation within the vivaria.
It has since evolved into a recruiting tool to familiarize the applicant to the vivarium environment prior to interview. Candidates always refer to the tool during the interview process as a helpful way for them to envision the expectations of the job.
Members can now access this tool in the "Products and Services / Tools Open Source" tab
