CCaTS BERD services are available throughout the Mayo Clinic Health System by scheduling a phone consultation with the BERD Resource at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester. Researchers should specifically request a phone consultation when scheduling the appointment. Skype for Business and other forms of video conferencing may be made available as necessary.


There is no charge for using the BERD Resource; however, access is limited. To ensure that 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 — including the need for ongoing collaboration through regularly scheduled meetings — may be referred to the Department of Health Science Research for additional support on a case-by-case basis.
