Core for Life, a new European alliance in Biomedical Research


Six European research centres in life sciences share technology and expertise in new Alliance for Core Facilities

BARCELONA/BRUSSELS, May 14, 2013 - As life sciences become increasingly dependent on technology, research centres create separate “core facilities” with innovative and cutting edge technologies, to serve their own institute. From now on “Core for Life”- members will share the fast-evolving technologies and expertise from their core facilities at European level. This will allow them to maximize resources and best practices to produce excellent science. Core for Life members today are CRG (Spain), VIB (Belgium), EMBL (Germany), FGCZ (Switzerland), MPI-CBG (Germany) and VBC-CSF (Austria).
