Shared Research Facilities

Columbia University Medical Center has more than 30 state-of-the-art shared research facilities physically housed and administered by its Departments, Centers and Institutes. Clinical research faculty, basic scientists and students all benefit from the shared access and cost of these resources. These resources offer the highest quality scientific technology to the community. Many of these facilities also offer education and training, as needed.

Information regarding the use of any research facility listed below may be obtained through the link to each facilities website.

If you would like general information about shared research facilities, please contact Joanne Berdebes, Associate Vice Dean for Research Administration at jb2636@columbia.edu.
