Research Facilities has created an operating model of extensive shared facility support for basic science research in the Keenan Research Centre. This provides the latest equipment and techniques in addition to professional training and management. By reducing duplication and increasing usage, the facility offers significant savings, creating a critical mass where cutting edge equipment and techniques are available to our scientists.
Research Core Facilities is spread over three floors and includes both common and specialized facilities such as Flow Cytometry, Molecular Biology, and Histology. Each floor has a core coordinator whose primary role is to train users and provide technical expertise in the design and execution of scientific experiments. The Research Bioimaging Facility has a variety of basic and specialized equipment for image capture, analysis and display and two coordinators are available for support. In addition, a state of the art animal resource centre is available providing training, assistance and adhering to the latest guidelines and regulations.
