Why Shared Services?

A well-informed portfolio of Cores provides the School and each investigator with a sustainable, strategic advantage.

  • Cores provide investigators fair-priced, easy access to the services, instrumentation and human expertise to support discovery, clinical trials, grants, publications, etc.
  • Cores allow the School to do more with each research dollar currently in-hand and with each future dollar obtained by avoiding the costs associated with the purchase and upkeep of duplicative instrumentation.

CIBR’s Core Facilities continue to play a key-role in the recruitment and retention for faculty.

When recruiting a new faculty member, Centers, Departments and Programs are strongly encouraged to:

  • Arrange for the faculty candidate to meet with CIBR to learn about the resources available and to take a tour of the Core facilities
  • Provide for subsidized use of relevant core facilities as part of the new faculty member’s start-up package.
