Visit MiCores and click the blue “sign-up” button, located at the top right side of this page, to get started. All launched Core users are invited to use the system, which is accessible to University of Michigan faculty, staff, and students through your Uniqname and Level-1 (UMICH) password. Individuals associated with the University of Michigan without university credentials will need to obtain a sponsored account through the MCommunity Sponsor System managed by ITS. Please send a request to HITS for assistance obtaining a sponsored account.

Once you complete the one-time registration process and are approved by your PI or Lab Manager, the system will enable you to place service requests, provide required approvals, and monitor progress. Please note: users must also be approved into each core they would like to request services from. To register for an account, follow these simple steps.


MiCores is being supported by the HITS (Health Information Technology Services) Service Desk. If you have any questions pertaining to access or the system, please contact HITS or visit the MiCores Learning Site (log in with your Level 1 password if prompted).

For scientific questions regarding services and available expertise, please contact the individual Core or brcfoffice@umich.edu.
