UCSF Liver Center

Core Facilities

The Liver Center operates three biomedical core facilities to expedite and enhance the research performed by Center members. The Cores are designed to provide liver-specific services that are unavailable elsewhere within or outside UCSF. Overall, the three Cores offer Center members several tangible benefits: preferred access to specialized equipment, expert advice and assistance, and cost-efficient products to make the most of existing research dollars. The Cores are intended to serve both clinical and basic science researchers. In addition to operating its own core facilities, the Liver Center offers members the opportunity to obtain funds to use other core facilities at UCSF.
