Mission and Purpose

Mission

Core Research Facilities at the University of Massachusetts Lowell have a mission to provide world-class instrumentation and facilities to our faculty researchers and to prepare our students as the next generation of researchers.

In addition, we share our scientific expertise and capabilities with the research community to attain our universal goal to provide access to expertise and facilities to conduct scientific research for the public good. Since purposeful education is a cynosure of our mission, our resource offerings are collectives of our experts, students, methods and instrumentation.

Purpose

Establishing Core Research Facilities provides us a means to identify and share our resources and communicate our capabilities. Greater insights of our campus capabilities and resources enable us to better plan symbiotic research and leverage existing resources.

Our research endeavors will expand by providing greater visibility of our research expertise. A comprehensive repository of our research instruments and capabilities will manifest multidisciplinary sponsored research projects and didactic opportunities for our students.
