There is no charge for using the BERD resources. In order to ensure all investigators who will benefit from this resource are scheduled in a timely manner, consultations with new and developing investigators and first-time users are given priority. Investigators with needs outside the scope of the BERD resource may be referred to the Department of Health Science Research (HSR) for additional support; these situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
