Core Facilities and Research Centers

Core scientific facilities support innovative research by providing highly specialized services, equipment, and staff that would otherwise be too expensive for a single laboratory or department to provide. Read feature interviews with Baylor's Advanced Technology Cores..

Note: Most cores are publicly available, however, some are required by their sponsors to limit access and to differentiate pricing.
