About the Center

The Northern New England region is among the most rural in the U.S. with limited access to shared resources and technologies that provide obligatory support to advance biomedical research and enhance network collaborations. To address this unmet need, we have consolidated our leading research core facilities into a new Center for Biomedical Shared Resources (CBSR) to offer an innovative, dynamic, integrated model of core facilities. Based on “TeamScience”, we can provide pioneering approaches and technologies to faculty, students, and investigators throughout the region, fostering interdisciplinary collaborations and advancing discovery. The CBSR will leverage extensive NIGMS investment in the region and provide a unique and vital role in our rural research environment to serve clients who otherwise would not have local or regional access to unified complex service and instrumentation at competitive, affordable prices. The CBSR cores relocated to the first floor of the Firestone Medical Research Building following completion of building construction at the end of 2022.

The creation of the CBSR is supported by NIH C06 Award 1C06OD030087-01 to Dr. Gordon Jensen
