Centralized Research Instrumentation Core (CRIC)

The goal of CRIC is to play a leadership role in disseminating information about the Delaware INBRE instrumentation core resources, and in developing a community of educated core facility users that works closely and collaboratively with core professionals. Fifteen technology centers/cores are affiliated with Delaware INBRE and participate in activities and programs enhancing access to state of the art technologies for biomedical research. Contact the core facility manager for a tour of the facility and overview of services.

Delaware INBRE Core Center Access Award Program:

CRIC promotes clinical and translational research by facilitating instrumentation access via its Core Center Access Award (CCAA).
Investigators at one of the Delaware INBRE institutions may request usage of one or a combination of the INBRE cores services. Awards may not exceed $4,000 and are  designed to assist biomedical research investigators in conducting small pilot studies, obtaining preliminary data for grant application, testing proof of concept, or providing additional data for publication.
After discussing your project with the core instrumentation center director of your choice, please complete the Core Center Access Award form and submit your request to the Delaware INBRE office at info@de-inbre.org. Core Center Access Award applications will be reviewed by the Delaware INBRE Core leaders. Awardee and the appropriate core director will be notified via email of award decision.

Delaware INBRE Instrumentation Core Development Award:

The Delaware INBRE Instrumentation Core Development Award is supported by the University of Delaware INBRE Office in order to enable staff from the affiliated INBRE cores to attend a workshop, offsite training, or conference. This award is aimed at core facility directors and research scientists that would like to develop new skills.

The Delaware INBRE Office is providing matching-funds for this purpose. The deadline for application for the Core Development Award is November 16, 2018. The training or development event must take place on or before April 19, 2019 and all receipts must be fully paid, processed, and allocated prior to April 30, 2019.  Please complete the Development Award form and submit your request to the Delaware INBRE office at info@de-inbre.org.
