Office of Research, Health Sciences Directory of Research Resources
This guide from the Office of Research, Health Sciences contains listing of offices, departments and core facilities within the University that play a central role in the University's research activities, and represents a key source of valuable information about support services, policies, procedures, and regulations related to the conduct of research.
Genomic Data Sharing Plans (NIH)
To assist the University of Pittsburgh research community in developing data sharing plans that meet the requirements of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Genomic Data Sharing Policy, some guidance documents have been developed. These documents are located on the Office of Research website under "References and Resources".
Health Science Core Research Facilities (HSCRF)
The Health Sciences Core Research Facilities (HSCRF) were established through the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor, Health Sciences in recognition of the vital role that centralized research resources play in the academic research enterprise. The technology required to perform innovative biomedical research changes rapidly and centralized research resources provide access to expertise, technology applications, and state-of-the-art instruments that are otherwise unavailable to most investigators.
The research resource facilities include scientists and technicians who provide expert advice for study design, standard and custom applications and assist the investigator to take their project aims from conception to data production. The scientific leadership is available to work with you to adapt and apply methods appropriate to your scientific goals and assure that the interpretation of the results is supported by the data.
