Core Facilities

CIBR The Center for Innovative Biomedical Resources (CIBR) has specialized expertise, cutting-edge technologies and sophisticated scientific resources supporting a robust basic, clinical, and translational biomedical research environment. The provide a broad array of core services to support successful biomedical research environments and facilitate access to state-of-the-art technologies necessary to catalyze high-impact science and support new research grants. They also operate core laboratories with directors and staff who are experts in these disciplines and foster a collaborative, interdisciplinary research environment.

Confocal Core The Confocal Core’s mission is to provide researchers with a wide array of state-of-the-art confocal imaging equipment to enable acquisition of high-resolution images (both in vivo and in vitro). The Core offers training and assistance in the use of multiple confocal microscopes housed in our facility. Optimization of data acquisition and image processing are both part of the training, thus enabling researchers to efficiently design studies, acquire image data and extract relevant data features. The confocal facility is available to all UMB researchers and extramural users on a fee-for-service basis.
