About the BRCF

Biomedical Research Core Facilities (BRCF) was formed in 1986, offering centralized access to research services, shared equipment and the expertise of biomedical researchers/investigators to support research projects. Our mission is that we believe in serving you, advancing health, and paving the way for great discoveries in biomedical research at the University of Michigan and beyond.

Our Cores Include:

Advanced Genomics Core Metabolomics Core
Bioinformatics Core Microscopy Core
Biomedical Research Store Proteomics & Peptide Synthesis Core
Epigenomics Core Transgenic Animal Model Core
Flow Cytometry Core Vector Core

Core Facilities aim to ensure centralized access to some of the latest instrumentation and services for investigators, avoiding the duplication of institutional expense and effort. Core instrumentation is regularly being upgraded to keep pace with the rapid advance in biomedical research. Cores have highly trained staff to carry out investigator projects, as well as access to workshops and training opportunities, increasing efficiency and quality control in coordinating services for multiple users. We are a fee-for-service provider, offering these services at a reasonable cost.

The BRCF uses MiCores as a single portal for investigators to request services from core facilities. MiCores is a scheduling, billing and reporting system that is fully integrated into the University of Michigan financial system. From the initial request through billing to data reporting and performance metrics, both internal and external clients have access to MiCores.
