Bauer Core Laboratory (FAS)

Location: Harvard FAS Center for Systems Biology, Northwest Lab Building, 52 Oxford Street, B227.80, Cambridge MA 02138

Core Summary:

Our goal is to advance research efforts in the life sciences that cannot readily be accomplished in the traditional academic laboratory because of a need for expensive instrumentation or automation, scientific or organizational infrastructure, or multidisciplinary expertise.

To promote cutting-edge research and to foster scientific collaborations, we make our extensive laboratory and computational resources available to scientists at Harvard. Our technical staff provide expertise and hands-on training in protocols and the use of instrumentation for a nominal fee. Researchers can sign up to use the instrumentation through an on-line scheduling system and conduct their experiments independently.
