About core facilities

A core facility is a laboratory with particularly advanced equipment that serves researchers both within and outside the unit.

Many research groups at the Faculty of Medicine need advanced research infrastructure. The Faculty has core facilities and other infrastructure to meet this need.

A core facility has particularly expensive research equipment that is made widely available to researchers outside the unit. This can be achieved by giving outside users access to the equipment, or facility employees can do the experiments for them.

The core facilities are part of the University's research infrastructure (Norwegian). The Faculty participate in approximately 20 core facilities. Many of them are run in tight collaboration with Oslo University Hospital and other institutions.
