Core Facilities & Shared Resources

The University of Miami recognizes the importance of maintaining a variety of specialized facilities and instrumentation to support the growing research and education enterprise. Core facilities and shared resources are created and directed by UM faculty and supported by the university to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration. Most of these facilities operate as recharge centers and are accessible on a fee-for-service and availability basis.

Researchers outside of UM may also inquire about the availability of the facilities and services by contacting us directly. For general information, to add your facility to the list, or to create a new core, please e-mail Helene Valentine, Director of Research Support for the Executive Dean for Research, Research Education and Innovative Medicine:
