Core Research Facilities

The Stanford University School of Medicine supports a number of shared research facilities housing specialized scientific instruments and services.  These include 23 scientific Service Centers, which are open to all researchers in the University at predetermined fees, and a number of Cores, which house equipment shared among a group of labs.

A categorical listing of shared research facilities of interest to biomedical researchers at Stanford University can be found here

Instrumentation scheduling and service ordering for service centers is slowly moving to the Stanford Shared Facilities Management System (aka iLab):

Information about new instruments and technologies in the School of Medicine scientific service centers can be found here.
