Five Oregon universities have signed a new agreement to strengthen collaboration leading to new scientific discoveries.
The Reciprocal Rate Agreement for the Use of Research Core Facilities and Shared Service Units was entered into by:
- Oregon Health and Science University
- University of Oregon
- Oregon State University
- Portland State University
- Oregon Institute of Technology
The aims of this agreement are to provide a reciprocal, internal rate structure for the use of research core facilities and shared service units for researchers between the institutions. Offering internal rates will allow researchers from each institution to have access to research cores and shared services, without higher financial barriers associated with outside user rate structures.
Offering internal rates will encourage the institutions' researchers, research core facilities, and shared service units to benefit from access to a wider range of services at lower prices, which will lead to economies of scale. It will also open the door for core scientists and researchers to collaborate in broader ways that improve scientific outcomes.
The following is a current list of all OHSU cores that are included in the agreement. This list will be updated as it changes over time, so please check back periodically. For questions about OHSU Cores and Shared Resources, contact Andy Chitty at email@example.com.
- Advanced Computing Center
- Advanced Imaging Research Center
- Advanced Light Microscopy Core
- Biostatistics & Design Program
- Clinical and Translational Research Core Services
- Elemental Analysis Core
- Endocrine Technologies Core
- Flow Cytometry
- Integrated Genomics Laboratory
- Medicinal Chemistry Core
- Multiscale Microscopy Core
- Small Animal Research Imaging Core
- Transgenic Mouse Models
At this time, no OHSU cores are specifically excluded from this agreement, but cores not listed here must be confirmed.
