Research Cores

Research Cores provide access to instrumentation, equipment and facilities (including databases), software, or professional expertise in the design and conduct of specialized measurements, analysis and interpretation of data, and research collaboration. To be considered a university-level research core, research resources should be broadly available to investigators and research teams across the University (and perhaps beyond) and should have a business plan or funding model (academic unit/center backed, recharge, project-by-project funding, etc.). Please contact the core directly about potential collaborations, including more detailed information about capabilities and funding methods.
