The Bauer Core Facility provides state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise to scientists at Harvard. Our goal is to advance research efforts in the life sciences that cannot readily be accomplished in the traditional academic laboratory because of a need for expensive instrumentation, scientific or organizational infrastructure, or multidisciplinary expertise.

Our technical staff will consult with researchers to help them choose the best technologies and to help them design careful experiments. Researchers may then request that the staff run the core instruments as a service, or they can request hands-on training so that they may use our instruments independently.
