The research-intensive cores are an integral part of the scientific pipeline at The University of Kansas Medical Center. Beginning in 2017, the Senior Associate Dean for Research has hosted an annual event to highlight the scientific teams that manage the core facilities and directly contribute to the research mission on campus. In addition to showcasing core scientific services, the event has featured vendor talks in support of new technologies emerging on campus. Please watch for the next event so you can come to learn about our core services and experts!
