Shared Equipment

The Shared Equipment Core provides investigators access to equipment that would be impractical for a single lab to purchase or maintain. An experienced lab manager cares for the shared equipment, oversees use, and offers training. The core also pays service contracts. See the shared equipment list below for specific information about each instrument.

The Shared Equipment Core is supported by NEI Core Center Grant P30 EY014801. Please cite this grant number on all publications that make use of this core.

Leadership & Management

Abigail S. Hackam, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Ophthalmology, directs the Shared Equipment core. Charles K. Yaros manages the core.
