Providing leading edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

Note from the Directors

The Shared Resource Laboratories provide an extensive spectrum of trained personnel, innovative, leading edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Our highly skilled and continually trained technical personnel provide the proper and timely expertise to bridge the gaps between sophisticated instrumentation and biology. We favor an integrated approach to research yielding more insight and an answer to today's increasingly complex questions.

Whatever it is you need to enhance your research, the Shared Resources Labs has it, will get it, will do it, or will invent it.

Upcoming Events

A CRISPR Transgenic Service

January 30, 2015, 2 - 3 pm

The Transgenic Facility at URMC is now utilizing CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing to generate novel mouse strains.  This revolutionary approach is much faster and cheaper than traditional methods of gene targeting.  An update of core services will be summarized as will practical guides for using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing for the production of mouse models.  The aim of this seminar is to provide investigators with essential and practical information in order to enhance individual research programs. The seminar will be held in the Ryan Case Method Room, 1-9576.  Contact Joe Miano for more information.

URMC Imaging Day, March 18, 2015!

More information will be posted in January! Contact Linda Callahan (585) 275-1317.
