The BioInspired Institute’s Materials Research Core Facility is located in Bowne Hall (4th Floor), encompassing approximately 15,000 square feet of multiuser space. Featuring administrative space—offices, seminar and conference rooms, and an atrium meeting area—as well as shared research space, the Materials Research Core is a cornerstone of the research capabilities of BioInspired Syracuse. The facility is an enabling resource for researchers engaged in a wide spectrum of problems, ranging from fundamental studies of the biochemical and physical processes controlling cell functions to the development of new technologies for biomedical applications.

The Research Core is a true user facility, with access open to all in the Central New York research community, including Syracuse University, our neighbors SUNY ESF and SUNY Upstate, other institutions of higher education, and industrial users.
