External Users

If you have no affiliation with Georgia Tech, you are an external user. This includes non GT academic institutions, government labs, and industry users. If you are from an academic institution or government institution, you pay the same rates as Georgia Tech users.

External Researchers will need to contact Paul Joseph (paul.joseph@ien.gatech; 404-894-5029), who will walk them though the process of becoming one.

To join our community, please fill out this form and fax it to 404-385-4082, with attention to Traci Walden-Monroe. Once we have received and processed this form, you will receive further instructions from our staff.


As of January 1, 2012, all new users of the Pettit, Marcus Inorganic, and Marcus Organic Cleanrooms & Labs are required to attend a common orientation program. This training will cover policies and procedures, safety, ethical practices, and basic processing. After attending this orientation, users can be granted access to all IEN facilities.
