Shared Resource Facilities
Shared Resource Facilities (SRF) bring state-of-the-art instrumentation and methodologies crucial to modern biomedical research cores within the reach of all Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai investigators and graduate students. The facilities are staffed by experts who not only provide research services, they also are sources of instruction and training and, as such, constitute a major educational resource for those wishing to diversify or explore new avenues of research. SRF are administered through the Office of the Dean and partially subsidized by institutional funds. Establishment of new SRF should be initiated by a proposal involving users from multiple departments/disciplines for review by the Dean’s Office.
The relentless and fast-paced evolution of biomedical technologies requires that the School continuously monitor the effectiveness and usage of each shared research facility so that it can modernize, restructure, or in some cases, eliminate them. We welcome your comments and experiences so that the facilities can respond to your needs and enhance your research ideas and pursuits. Please submit your comments, suggestions, and appraisals to the administrator of Shared Resource Facilities, see contact information on right. With your assistance, we will continue to refine the array of services offered by Shared Resource Facilities so that the latest techniques and methodologies are available to all MSSM investigators.
