Dean’s CoREs

Dean's CoREs bring state-of-the-art, crucial instrumentation and methodologies for modern biomedical research within reach of all Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai investigators, post docs, and graduate students. Our facilities are staffed by experts who not only provide research services, but are also sources of instruction and training. As such, our CoREs constitute a major educational resource for those wishing to diversify or explore new avenues of research. CoREs are administered through the Office of the Dean and partially subsidized by institutional funds. Should you wish to establish a new Dean’s CoREs, you may submit a proposal that involves users from multiple departments and disciplines for review by the Dean’s Office.

General Guidelines

  • CoREs are open to all faculty, with equal access regardless of departmental or center affiliation; priority is given to Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai faculty over external users.
  • The CoREs utilize the iLab Platform (core managemnt software) to reserve equipment, request services, and billing.
  • All users must register for an iLab account using the link: 
  • Use of CoRE services requires authorization from a Principal Investigator, for billing purposes. 
  • Billing is inititiated when service is requested. 
  • Users are invoiced and billed by fund number on a monthly basis.
  • Users who cancel appointments less than 24 hours in advance are subject to full charge.
  • Direct questions regarding monthly billing should be directed to CoRE Directors.
  • The CoREs are not responsible for the application of their products or outcome of research studies involving their products.
  • Each CoRE has an advisory committee that meets semi-annually with the CoRE directors. 

Accessing Stony Brook University Cores

The CoRE administration is pleased to announce the formal agreement for Stony Brook University (SBU) to provide access to the SBU cores including the Proteomics and Metabolomics facilities to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). This agreement was presented at the recent SBU / ISMMS Scientific Symposium on October 30, 2017.

At the end of November all SBU cores, including Proteomics and Metabolomics, became available to ISMMS researchers. For more information on the services provided by SBU cores, please visit Stony Brook University's Research Core Facilities. For more information on the expertise in discovery and quantitative proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics provided by SBU, please visit visit their Biological Mass Spectrometry Shared Resource facility.

To access SBU cores, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into iLab
  2. Click on the “list all cores” link on the left-hand menu
  3. Select other institutions in the dropdown menu and search for Stony Brook
  4. Select the core you want to use

If you have any questions about SBU cores, please email Shekhar Patil
