The University of Michigan Medical School Office of Research is working to update the latest core profile information on the Michigan Research Cores Website. Based on feedback from fellow U-M faculty and researchers, we are requesting some additional input from cores to achieve the most accurate and user-friendly resource possible.

As part of the latest updates to the Michigan Research Cores website, we are specifically collecting:

  • “Keywords” that can be applied to your core’s services and equipment. This will help improve upon the search functionality and will enhance search engine capabilities to guide users to your core profile page.
  • More specific information about equipment type, vendors, and usage availability within your core. This will aid U-M faculty and researchers in more collaborative working opportunities, grant applications, etc.
