Mission of the Core:

The objective of the Analytical Instrumentation Core is to provide support/training to investigators through cutting-edge analytical instruments and services to facilitate research and education in the Department of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine as well as Boston Medical Center. We maintain all core instruments and provide open access to resources in an effort to increase accessibility of instruments for investigators. We fully support investigators in their efforts to win extramural research funding and introduce innovative instrumentation through the use of regularly held seminars.


The Analytical Instrumentation Core’s central laboratory is located at 670 Albany Street, Lab 232, Boston, MA 02118. Other satellite sites on the BUMC include W-, X-, E-, R-buildings and the Evans Biomedical Research Center

Please contact Lynn Deng for access to buildings and lab locations
