Who can see my profile information?
If you are over 18, your profile is visible to registered, logged-in users of LabXchange by default. This setting can be changed using the Profile Visibility menu on your profile page. We recommend that you think carefully about the information you want to share, and check with a parent or educator if you have any questions.
What information appears on my profile?
Your profile is where you can choose to share more information about yourself with the LabXchange community, if you wish:
- Your gender, country, and city
- A brief biography
- Information about your professional and educational background, and awards you have received
You can also set or change your profile photo from your profile page, and indicate whether you are available for mentorship and are accepting new mentees.
Your profile page is also where you can select whether or not your profile is visible in LabXchange search results, and whether or not other LabXchange users can send you messages.
How do I change my profile information?
Use the pencil icon on your profile page to change any of the sections. Please note that you will not be able to change your username once you have registered your account.
How do I change my profile picture?
You can change your profile picture from your profile page. Click on the picture to upload a new image.
Who can send me messages?
On your profile, you can decide whether you want to allow other users to message you by selecting "Other users can message me" under your profile picture. You can also choose to be visible only to registered, logged-in LabXchange users.
