School of Medicine Research Cores
The School of Medicine provides a wide array of Research Cores the support the research of all researchers in the Department and School. Most of these are subsidized by the School and run on a charge-back basis. Members of certain groups (e.g. Cancer Center members) may enjoy additional discounts for the use of some of these Cores. A list of all current Research Cores can be found here.
Shared Departmental Resources
To help foster and promote basic and translational research and to help integrate interdisciplinary research efforts the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics provides several shared resources to its members.
Contact information for each shared resource is provided below. Users who would like to know more information about these systems should contact Mark Daniels to discuss equipment, training, scheduling and issues at email@example.com.

Responsibility of Shared Resources
The responsibility for the maintenance, upkeep, monitoring, and running of shared space and resources rests with all faculty in Pinn and Snyder. For example, it is expected that all shared facilities and equipment spaces are left clean and functional. All items stored in shared areas must be clearly marked with lab name and contact info. If problems arise with the unsupervised shared spaces, please discuss these with Mark Daniels.
In supervised shared spaces, the principal investigator assigned to oversee the operation of that space has the authority to create rules and regulations that pertain to the usage of the shared space, as they see fit, to guarantee that the integrity of the space remains intact.
These rules and regulations can be but are not limited to: experimental techniques to be used in the space, training required, monitoring the access to the shared space, requiring reservation and signing in of the space and disciplinary actions associated with improper usage of the space. Each PI supervising a shared resource will provide a set of written rules that will be reviewed and posted accordingly.
