Core Research Facilities

The Stanford University School of Medicine supports a number of shared research facilities housing specialized scientific instruments and services.  These include 20 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 http://spectrum.stanford.edu/biomedcores

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.

There are a number of scientific services that are not offered by Stanford’s shared facilities.  We offer the links below as a starting point for a search to find these types of services at other Universities.  These centers are not affiliated with Stanford and we have no direct knowledge about the quality of their services.
