Biomedical Research Core Facilities Committee

The Biomedical Research Core Facilities Committee provides oversight of cores.  The Biomedical Research Core Facilities Committee is advisory to the Dean through the Office of the Executive Vice Dean and Chief Scientific Officer.

The Committee provides guidance regarding research core facilities’ quality of service, user satisfaction, fiscal responsibility, and resource allocation.  As appropriate, the committee approves and helps establish new cores, as well as new services within existing cores.  Committee members serve an important role in supporting timely, state-of-the-art service to the PSOM research community.
