Analytical Instrumentation Core
BUMC Analytical Instrumentation Core’s mission is to provide support to investigators through cutting-edge analytical instruments 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.

They are extremely important in helping us build a positive track record and obtaining future NIH funding for new Core instruments and equipment. Please acknowledge the AIC in all publications and grant applications where equipment use and/or services and expertise provided by our staff contributed to the final results. The proper way to acknowledgement the AIC is as follows: “This work was supported by the Boston University Analytical Instrumentation Core” or “This work was accomplished by using the service provided by the Boston University Analytical Instrumentation Core.”
The Analytical Instrumentation Core operates at a loss and is subsidized by the Department of Medicine. What does not get included in the balance sheets are the indirect costs generated from grants obtained with the help of data from our core. You can help us continue to serve you by letting us know when you submit a proposal and/or are awarded a grant which contains data obtained from the use of our Core.
