Research Core Facility


Morehouse School of Medicine has opened a newly designed biomedical research technology core facility, available to internal investigators and external collaborators. Morehouse School of Medicine’s facility renovations were sponsored by a $10 million grant investment from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, part of the National Institutes of Health. The newly renovated state-of-the-art research facility continues a master plan to improve Morehouse School of Medicine’s research infrastructure.

The new design allows MSM to optimize its use of space for equipment, drives cross-disciplinary scientific exchange, and promotes a collaborative environment.

The open core concept allows:

Improved Access to Research Resources 

Researchers can now access shared use equipment 24 hours a day, 7 seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Enhanced Core Efficiencies

A centralized location of core labs.
New and updated equipment.

  • Increased freezer storage capacity
  • Increased work bench space
  • A New Biological Manipulation Core
  • Online access, data collection, and billing through iLabs, a newly implemented lab management software

Student Training

The new facility provides ample research-focused training tools, essential to the success of educational programs. 

Currently, there are five "umbrella" cores that encompass multiple labs with similar technologies:
