Need help designing your study? To store tissue samples? A high-powered microscope for your research?

No need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars you don’t have on equipment, infrastructure, and manpower. The University of Chicago Core Facilities offer you a centralized location for specialized equipment – plus the experienced staff to make the magic happen at a fraction of the cost of doing it yourself.

And the ITM wants to help you take advantage of their resources, awarding up to $5,000 to offset any costs associated with using one of UChicago’s Core Facilities. Applicants are eligible for one award per year.
