Core Services and Equipment Resources

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 Core, the Flow Cytometry Facility, the Advanced Cell Exploration Core, the Lipidomics Core, and the Transgenic Core. The faculty also supports an Autoclave Repair Core and a Workshop that provide repair, maintenance and fabrication services.

Looking for shared equipment?

The Office of Research has curated a research resource database housed within the Faculty Administration Resource Manager (FARM). Please note that FARM is not currently open to all users. If you are looking for a specific piece of equipment, please reach out to Colleen Sunderland (
