Core Research Facilities
The Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry has centralized research facilities to provide fee-based access to instrumentation, technology and/or services. These facilities allow our researchers access to essential scientific infrastructure at a reasonable cost. Benefits of using core facilities also include expert consultation, technical assistance, training and education from dedicated staff, enhancement of scientific collaboration, and promotion of higher-level experimentation.
The core facilities include the Cell Imaging Centre, the Flow Cytometry Facility, the High Content Analysis Core, the Lipidomics Core, The Applied Genomics Core (TAGC), and the Transgenic Core. The faculty also supports an Autoclave Repair Core and a Workshop that provide repair, maintenance and fabrication services.
The Office of Research has created a research resource database housed within the Faculty Administration Resource Manager (FARM). This database provides a simple way to search for specialized scientific and laboratory equipment found in core facilities or individual research labs. Please note that the use of equipment in labs is at the discretion and approval of the faculty member.
