Welcome to Biomedical Research Core Facilities

MorrisWelcome to the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine Research Core Facilities website! 
 
The Perelman School of Medicine is committed to advancing the research and academic endeavors at Penn and neighboring scientific communities.  Our 21 research cores offer a number of services, ranging from molecular profiling to cell sorting to high resolution electron microscopy.  Through these diverse resources, we provide access to state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation, technical expertise and training and education all designed to support innovative, cutting edge research.  A complete listing of each core is found on the menu bar to the left.  I invite you to explore the exciting resources available.  Our cores look forward to collaborating with you in your scientific efforts.
 
If you have any questions about our cores or would like additional information, please contact Dorothy Leung (dorothyl@mail.med.upenn.edu).
