The primary uses of a lab or research group site are talent and funding recruitment. It provides funding agencies information of your past grants/work and allows you to post post-award info required by funding agencies. It can also list the services your lab or research group provide.
Some example lab / project / program sites include:
Request a lab/project/research group website
We can create any pages needed for a lab site, but the suggested pages or sections are:
Your main page. This establishes in a brief web-appropriate style what your lab does. It also is the place to funnel your users to the content you want and highlight your recent work.
one sentence statement of what the lab does
a brief paragraph about what the lab does
if you want a longer description, we can make an about page.
anything you want to draw attention to
contact info - if you don't want a separate page for contact info.
On the research section, you can go into more detail about your research in general as well as more specifically describe and showcase your current and past projects.
For instance, Sara Rothenberg's research section has a separate page for each research area such as "Rice and Methylmercury" and "Rice Baby Cereal".
The Social Mobility Lab list all research focus areas on one page.
The Sexual and Reproductive Health Equity Consortium lists all "active projects" on one page.
A listing of selected pubs related to the lab. As with profile page publication listings, these will need to be edited by Alan. Just send him the journal title, DOI and if available the PubMedID number.
Showcase your team. Especially your students.
Resources and equipment
If appropriate for your lab and recruiting talent or funds, list what you've got.
Contact and opportunities
Main lab contact (although this can be listed elsewhere). The opportunities are for current open postilions in the lab and for study participant recruitment.
Individual study recruitment can be standalone pages as well.
Standalone recruitment page examples:
News and events
There are a few ways to display this. It's possible to just list as part of the landing page - or as its own page. But in general, the info is important to display.
