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.
