Research Core Facilities and Shared Equipment Services

By sharing resources, researchers at Wake Forest gain access to equipment and laboratories they might not be able to afford individually. In addition, they offer a level of expertise unique to each specialty.

Many of these resources are available to outside researchers, others are not. Please contact the facility directly for more information.
