Core Facilities

Duke's core research facilities offer investigators a wide range of state-of-the art instrumentation and technologies for basic, translational, and clinical research.

Duke University and Duke University School of Medicine offer state-of-the-art shared research facilities that are available for use by all Duke investigators. Core facilities are physically housed and administered by Duke research institutes and centers, including the Duke Cancer Institute and the Duke Human Vaccine Institute.

Our core directors and lab personnel are highly trained experts in their field who provide technical expertise, consultation, and training.

Histology and Microscopy Core Facility

The mission of the Duke Microscopy and Histology Core Facility is to provide high quality instrumentation at an affordable cost to research investigators within the Department of Pediatrics as well as the entire Duke research community. The facility is located in Room 425 of the Jones Building and is managed by Mary Hutson, PhD in the Division of Neonatology and the Neonatal Perinatal Research Institute (NPRI).

To protect the department's investment in the facility and to ensure the Core can effectively provide its services, use of the facilities and equipment is restricted to Core staff and investigators trained and certified by the Core staff.
