Biomedical Research Core Facilities
We believe in serving you, advancing health, and paving the way for great discoveries in biomedical research at the University of Michigan and beyond.
Cores are centralized facilities or labs which offer shared services, shared equipment, resources and expertise to biomedical researchers and investigators on a fee-for-service basis.
provides high-quality, low-cost DNA analysis for research clients on a recharge basis, including genotyping, gene expression analysis, DNA quantification and quality control
provides easy, on-site procurement of more than 700 different items, including enzymes, reagents, and kits used in molecular, cell biology, and some protein chemistry
offers equipment for microscopic imaging, including fluorescence microscopy, as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopy
provides research services in proteomics, protein analysis by mass spectrometry and other techniques, as well as custom peptide synthesis. The Core offers a full range of services in qualitative and quantitative proteomics, including the preparation of (unprocessed) clinical research samples as well as biological samples.
produces transgenic mice and rats, CRISPR/Cas9 pipeline, mouse knockout models, ES cell lines, and BAC Recombineering
How We Help
Standing Together Against Racism
Michigan Medicine leadership recently issued the statement that “we unequivocally recognize racism as a public health issue and we stand together against bias and inequality.”
Here at the Medical School Office of Research, we wholeheartedly endorse this message and the institutional strategy and actions required to take on and defeat racism. Michigan Medicine and the university are adding new tools and resources every day to foster culture change, and we encourage you to connect with the Michigan Medicine Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience if you are struggling with issues of racism and how it impacts your personal and professional life.
Racism has no place in the Medical School Office of Research. As current events unfold across the country, and the fall-out of the pandemic continues to contribute to anxiety at both a personal and community level, we continue to be committed to nurturing an environment of compassion and inclusion that ultimately helps us fulfill our mission to support research and improve the lives of patients.
The Biomedical Research Store
Provides University of Michigan research investigators with easy, on-site procurement of enzymes, reagents, and kits used in molecular, cell biology, and some protein chemistry.
More than 700 different items from 13 vendors are stocked at five locations for immediate purchase.
The Biosciences Initiative and Medical School Office of Research have partnered to create a powerful, searchable database with information on research cores across campus. The new Michigan Research Cores web portal now enables researchers to easily find and identify the location and capabilities of 70 research cores across campus. Visit the site to learn more!
