Access Core University Facilities

Where’s a nuclear reactor when you really need one? Well…here at the U, actually. In addition to nuclear engineering, imaging, genetic sequencing and nanofabrication labs, the University has dozens of other core research facilities and highly specialized equipment that are hard to find and harder to operate. These facilities are run by trained staff and are available to serve industry and university research needs. Visit the CORES website.
