Discover More Than 50 Research Support Centers through New Web Portal

January 07, 2019

Did you know U of I is home to more than 50 approved service centers across the state? Now all these centers — along with descriptions of their services — are in one location: the University of Idaho's Shared Resources site. The site serves as a gateway to a wide range of research support services for our faculty and students, as well as cohorts from the private sector, government agencies and other universities.

Through these service centers, U of I's expert faculty and staff can provide the resources and expertise to advance and complete nearly any research project. Among many things, they can help with:

  • Processing large data sets
  • Acquiring small lab animals
  • Providing powerful, cutting-edge equipment
  • Fabricating special tools and devices for your research
  • Designing experiments
  • Planning complex research projects

The Shared Resources site was developed by the Office of Research and Economic Development's Office of Sponsored Programs to help foster a more collaborative environment in which U of I's knowledge and assets can be shared more efficiently and at competitive rates.

Proposal writers seeking funding for new equipment are also encouraged to visit this site to avoid the purchase of duplicate equipment.
