Harvard Core Facilities

Core Facilities (“Cores”) are shared central laboratories, each capable of performing a specific set of experimental functions that enable investigators to perform experiments more efficiently and at a more affordable cost. Cores facilitate research activity by providing resources and services that are beyond the means of most individual labs. Harvard is fortunate to have a world-class array of these important resources, some of which are shown above.

The Harvard Catalyst group maintains a list of Harvard's Core Facilities, many of which are of interest to life sciences PhD students. Each Core lab observes its own set of policies and procedures; be sure to contact each Core's administrative staff to confirm it fits with your research interest and that you will have access to it.
