Core Lab Funding Program

The Core Lab Funding Program is a Biosciences Initiative funding opportunity that aims to enhance technology at existing core laboratories and/or create new core laboratories to advance the research capabilities of U-M investigators. Proposals require a plan to make any proposed new cores fully sustainable after a three-year launch period.

Applications to the Core Lab Funding Program are welcome and will be reviewed on an ongoing, rolling basis once received.
