Shared Resource Facilities
Mount Sinai has several Shared Resource Facilities (SRFs). SRFs permit Postdoctoral Fellows to utilize state of the art instrumentation and methodologies that have become crucial for modern biomedical research, but are often technically or monetarily beyond the limits of individual labs. The facilities are staffed by experts who not only provide research services, but are also sources of instruction and training and, as such, constitute a major educational resource for those wishing to diversify or explore new avenues of research. Shared resources include (but are not limited to) microscopy, mouse genetics, qRT-PCR, engineering and flow cytometry. See website for further details: http://www.mssm.edu/research/resources/shared-resource-facilities. SRFs are administered through the Office of the Dean and partially subsidized by institutional funds. Some additional shared resources are run by individual departments. These are also available as fee-for-service entities: http://www.mssm.edu/research/resources/departmental-cores.
