Research Resources

Shared resources and core laboratories provide services, equipment, expertise and training relevant to clinical and translational investigators. These core facilities offer access to instruments too expensive for the individual investigator, technical assistance and training as well as tailored services-for-fee at a reduced cost and greater convenience than outside vendors.
