The Office of Shared Research Facilities (OSRF) oversees the core facilities, which make up a pivotal and essential part of the research ecosystem, providing critical resources that enable existing and emerging technologies to facilitate groundbreaking discoveries.  OSRF Cores offer expertise in state-of-the-art instrumentation and services as well as experimental design and data analysis to advance research programs across the disciplines.  Operated as fee-for-service facilities, OSRF cores are managed in order to best support the University’s mission to discover and create new knowledge of living systems. We are driven by the research needs of the faculty.
