The Core Facilities exist to Coordinate shared resources and expand the base of sponsored research by providing a strong research infrastructure. Core Facilities are accessible to all investigators at the College of Medicine and other PSU campuses at subsidized fee levels, as well as to researchers outside the PSU system at fee levels equal to full costs of analyses.
