The Arizona Core Network formed to improve access, leverage investment, increase utilization, and boost the collective research competitiveness of our state universities.
The Arizona Core Network represents a range of disciplines, including biological and health sciences, chemical, material and structural analysis, electronics and nanofabrication, forestry and environmental science, and computing and data science. This collaboration is a unified investment in Arizona’s future, seeding growth economically, educationally and entrepreneurially. Our combined resources better position researchers and scientists to tackle issues that affect Arizona — such as health challenges like COVID-19 and Alzheimer’s disease, developing solar technologies to power our towns and cities or combating the forest fires that rage across the state every year.
The core facilities of Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona provide advanced equipment and instrumentation, specialized services and consultation to faculty, students, industry and government researchers. The Arizona Core Network represents a range of disciplines, including biological sciences, chemical, material and structural analysis, electronics and nanofabrication, forestry and environmental science, and computing and health.
ASU Core Facilities are comprised of several clusters that host dozens of facilities, empowering clients with the tools, knowledge and training to turn pressing research challenges into innovative solutions.
The core facilities at Northern Arizona University offer focused services, equipment and research testbeds to support projects in biomedical research, engineering, genetics, chemistry, forestry, biological and environmental sciences, and more.
The University of Arizona is home to more than 50 unique, highly specialized core facilities which enable research and promote interdisciplinary collaboration. UA’s facilities also strive for fiscal sustainability and accessibility to all users.
