Core Services of the Center

The Liver Center operates four biomedical core facilities to expedite and enhance the research performed by Center members. The Cores are designed to provide liver-specific services that are unavailable elsewhere within or outside UCSF. Overall, the four Cores offer Center members several tangible benefits: preferred access to specialized equipment, expert advice and assistance, and cost-efficient products to make the most of existing research dollars. The Cores are intended to serve both clinical and basic science researchers.
