Robert A. Swanson (1969) Biotechnology Center

The Koch Institute features 12 core facilities that provide key technical services to our faculty. From routine (though essential) support services to advanced technical and consulting services, these cores facilitate and enhance the important research being conducted on a daily basis. Many of the facilities also offer training programs that enable Koch Institute staff, students, and postdoctoral fellows to acquire the additional technical and intellectual expertise needed to advance both their work and their careers.

NCI Cancer Center

The costs of many of these cores are partially defrayed by funds from a number of sources, most notably a Cancer Center Support Grant from the NCI to the KI. In recognition of this support, priority access is given to KI members, NCI-funded research projects and other contributing user groups. However, the KI is strongly committed to enabling biomedical research at MIT. Thus, to the extent permitted by available capacity, a number of the cores are accessible to the broader MIT community. See individual cores for details about access, user policies and service rates.
