U-M is full of rich core resources, but they are often challenging to find. The new Michigan Research Cores web portal enables researchers to easily find and identify the location and capabilities of 70 research cores across campus. Cores are centralized facilities or labs that offer services, equipment, resources and expertise on a recharge basis to scientific researchers. The directory will incorporate even more cores in the coming weeks as the website expands in functionality and content.
This interactive directory aims to save U-M researchers time and money, while enhancing research productivity. Costs can be lowered by eliminating redundancies and providing efficient access to high-end instrumentation and expertise. The Michigan Research Cores website enables the research community to quickly explore what U-M has to offer, providing faculty, staff and students agility in research opportunities. Core facility experts can also provide consultation and input to investigators on the design and conduct of their research as well as offer expertise to their project proposals.
