Health Sciences Core Research Facilities
The Health Sciences Core Research Facilities (HSCRF) were established through the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor, Health Sciences in recognition of the vital role that centralized research resources play in the academic research enterprise. The technology required to perform innovative biomedical research changes rapidly and centralized research resources provide access to expertise, technology applications, and state-of-the-art instruments that are otherwise unavailable to most investigators.
Our research resource facilities include scientists and technicians who provide expert advice for study design, standard and custom applications and assist the investigator to take their project aims from conception to data production. The scientific leadership is available to work with you to adapt and apply methods appropriate to your scientific goals and assure that the interpretation of the results is supported by the data.
