Research Core Facility

Morehouse School of Medicine's Research Core Facility is an open core concept biomedical research technology core facility. It is available to internal investigators and external collaborators. Renovations to facility were sponsored by a $10 million grant investment from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, part of the National Institutes of Health. The state-of-the-art research facility continues a master plan to improve Morehouse School of Medicine’s research infrastructure.

The Research Core Facility optimizes its use of space for equipment, drives cross-disciplinary scientific exchange, and promotes a collaborative environment.

The open core concept allows:
