The Biomedical Research Core Facilities (BRCF) are critical components of the UM Research Complex. The BRCF serve as campus-wide resources for developing and providing state-of-the-art biomedical research services as well as fostering collaboration among researchers.
The BRCF ensure that individual investigators have access to new biomedical research services and costly instrumentation. They provide highly trained personnel to carry out technically demanding procedures, which results in increased quality control and efficiency. The BRCF also sponsor relevant mini-courses and technical symposia.
Michigan Medicine is consistently ranked among the top hospitals in the country and is the predominant site for clinical training with more than 43,000 inpatient admissions and 1.6 million outpatient visits each year. In addition, UMHS has established satellite clinics and a 400-acre satellite campus nearby to provide expanded primary care outpatient services and related educational experiences.
