Core services are available for all faculty, staff and students, as well as for our
colleagues at other universities within the State system.
Core Laboratories in academia are a centralized resource in which sophisticated and complex equipment is made available to multiple users who have an occasional need for highly specialized assays or technical services. This approach is efficient, economical, and provides the user with state-of-the-art technology without the necessity of a major capital or staffing expense.

The Senior Vice President for Research oversees all core laboratories.
The Core Laboratory Coordinator in this office helps the core laboratory directors to market their services, provides overall business management, and also assists with policy formulation.
In addition, a Core Laboratory Oversight Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Vice President for Research to make the core laboratories as efficient and productive as possible. They provide input on matters such as
(a) mechanisms and procedures for activating new cores and for disengaging cores that no longer serve their intended purpose,
(b) systems by which Augusta University can collect and analyze data on current and projected core laboratory usage, and
(c) approaches to maximize efficiency and to minimize the financial demands on Augusta University.
Augusta University's campus core laboratories, developed through the generous support
of the Georgia Research Alliance, are available for all faculty, staff and students, as well as for our colleagues
at other universities within the State system. Many of these cores will also provide
their services to the private sector. The faculty or staff members identified for
each core welcome your inquiries about the use of their facilities. You may also contact
the Core Laboratory Coordinator with your queries.
