HMS Core Facilities
Core scientific facilities support innovative research at Harvard by providing highly specialized services, equipment and staff that would otherwise be too expensive for a single laboratory or department to provide.
Bioinformatics Support at HMS
In an effort to provide bioinformatics analysis services and training to the HMS Community, the HMS Tools and Technology Program has provided additional support and resources to the HSPH Bioinformatics Core (HBC). HBC provides expertise in areas such as array analysis, next-gen sequencing (NGS) and functional analysis. Their NGS support includes epigenetics, transcriptomics and re-sequencing studies. HBC works together with research computing groups on all aspects of data management.
Harvard Catalyst Core Facilities Database
Harvard Catalyst has created this searchable database of core facilities at HMS and its affiliated institutions. The cores are indexed by institution and by service category; the catalog is also searchable by keyword. The database will grow as more cores are established and additional services are identified.
To expand your search beyond Harvard core facilities, access the eagle-i resource discovery platform directly. Launched in 2010, this open-source application allows researchers to search for the resources they need within the Harvard community and throughout a network of universities across the U.S. Resources include core facilities, instruments, organisms, antibodies, cell lines, plasmids, biospecimens, algorithms, and human studies.
Faculty & Staff
Jennifer Smith, PhD, Assistant Director, ICCB-Longwood
I joined ICCB-Longwood in 2011 after completing a post-doctoral fellowship here at Harvard Medical School. Throughout my educational training, I utilized viruses to better understand basic principles in molecular and cellular biology. Now I have the opportunity to share my screening experiences and continue to learn with investigators that use ICCB-L to perform small molecule and RNAi screens. When not at ICCB-L, I can be found enjoying the outdoors here in New England.
