All graduate student research is carried out in faculty research laboratories located on the Brown University campus and in nearby affiliated hospitals. In addition to all of the basic research equipment, tools and facilities, there are several major, shared facilities.
BioMed Core Facilities
The Leduc Bioimaging Facility, open to all investigators, provides equipment and training dedicated to high-resolution imaging in the life sciences. The facility includes a Transmission Electron Microscope, a Scanning Electron Microscope, two Fluorescence Microscopes, a Fluorescence Stereomicroscope, three Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopes, and software for image analysis. The facility also maintains equipment for sample preparation, including a critical point dryer, sputter coater, and microtomes for ultrathin sectioning.
The Genomics Core Facility is a part of the Center for Genomics and Proteomics. The mission of the Center is not focused on a specific disease or organ system, but rather aims to apply interdisciplinary systems biology research to a wide variety of fundamental biological processes.
