Office of Research Core Administration

The Office of Research Core Administration supports research cores in the School of Medicine which were established to make research more efficient and cost effective. The cores allow the presence of specialized instruments and personnel that individual laboratories cannot afford. Personnel in the cores provide expertise on the capabilities and limitations of their instruments and services and develop new applications for their techniques. The cores provide training and support for user operated instruments.

The Office of Research Core Administration provides administrative support for the research cores in the School of Medicine at the University of Virginia. This administrative structure allows the combined research cores to have status similar to a department and staff have their appointments listed as in ORCA. Faculty in research cores belong to other academic departments.
