2020 ABRF Conference posterIn May of 2018, the BioCore was started to begin a small- to medium-sized equipment sharing program between the MCDB, EBIO and IPHY departments. Funding originally came from an Innovation Buffs grant, awarded by CU Vice Chancelor and COO Kelly Fox.

Currently, the BioCore manages 1,770 ft2 of shared laboratory space among two shared labs, as well as a host of other shared equipment that remains in shared spaces and individual faculty labs.
