About Us and Our Site

The mission of CWRU's Core Facilities website is to provide a centralized source of standardized, searchable information about the individual core facilities and groups providing specialized services. It is designed to help investigators identify cores with the equipment and services they need to prepare a grant proposal, conduct their research or obtain answers to their questions. It is not designed to replace individual core facility websites.

Investigators can search this website using keywords or view a list of all cores. Basic information such as core descriptions, contact information, services, equipment, access restrictions, and links to core websites are provided. Investigators should visit the individual core websites and/or contact the cores for more detailed information.

Core Directors can use this site to publicize their core's services. The online submission form can be used to add a new core or update an existing core. Core records should be updated at least once per year.

The Core Facilities website is managed by the CWRU Office of Research Administration's IT group as directed by the Core Facilities Support committee.
