The Faculty of Medicine is home to 11 cutting-edge core facilities, many of which are integral to the research endeavors of CI3. Each core facility offers the highest quality scientific technology and expertise, as well as education and training. Key facilities available for students and staff of CI3 include the Flow Cytometry and Virometry Suite; Proteomics; Bioinformatics; Level 3 Biocontainment; Genomics; Cell Biology and Image Acquisition Core, and Pre-clinical Imaging Core. CI3 members also rely heavily on the animal vivarium, which is operated and maintained under the supervision of the CCAC accredited Animal Care and Veterinary Services (ACVS) team. This facility is located on the first floor of RGN, in close proximity and accessible to research teams based in RGN, OHRI and CHEO-RI. In addition, clinical and translational research platforms developed by affiliated hospital-based research institutes (e.g. ICES, Ottawa Methods Centre, Biotherapeutics Manufacturing Centre (BMC)) are also available.
