Core Facilities

Our school’s shared core instrumentation and transgenic animal facilities support research by UB faculty and investigators at our affiliated institutions

These facilities not only house state-of-the-art equipment but in many cases also provide data analysis, training and grant writing consultation.

3/6/19
Supplies the school and affiliated research programs with biochemical reagents.
11/12/18
Features state-of-the-art imaging equipment dedicated to clinical and translational research, including MRI, CT and PET/CT scanners.
10/2/19
Our instrument laboratory provides training and consultation services for researchers whose work involves flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and gel-documentation. We work closely with other core facilities to provide comprehensive and integrative services to solve the imaging and cytometry challenges presented by cutting-edge research programs.
