​The research core facilities encompass a broad range of services, technology and expertise. The multidisciplinary scope of core facilities encourages sharing of scientific resources to enable focused development of technology that serves all research efforts across the spectrum of biomedical science. As a guiding principle, all faculty, their staff and students may utilise these shared resources.
