There is a wide range of shared resources available to investigators at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and the Morningside campus. For a searchable list of core facilities available to all researchers at CUMC, please visit the P&S Research Core Facilities page. For a list of shared resources at the Morningside campus, please visit the Columbia Research Shared Resources page.
Resources of particular interest to stem cell researchers include:
Quantitative Proteomics and Metabolomics Center
The Quantitative Proteomics and Metabolomics Center focuses on identification of proteins and metabolites with differential quantitative expression in cells, tissues, or in affinity purifications. Our technique applies mass spectrometry to many different research problems with a strong focus on stem cell science.
Confocal and Specialized Microscopy Core
The Confocal and Specialized Microscopy Shared Resource (CSMSR) at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC) provides advanced microscope systems for multidimensional optical imaging of living and fixed cells and tissues. The CSMSR offers a wide range of state-of-the-art microscopy technologies, from super-resolution microscopy to laser capture and microirradiation.
Operated jointly with the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Genome Center is a collaborative resource that provides access to specialized instrumentation and technical expertise in three service components: Next generation genome, exome and RNA sequencing, high throughput screening and high content microscopy (HTS/HCM); and Medium throughput molecular screening (MTMS)
