Two of Duke’s Center for Genomic and Computational Biology’s (GCB) core facilities, Sequencing & Genomic Technologies and Proteomics & Metabolomics, will move into the newly renovated Chesterfield building in downtown Durham in mid-July. The new lab space will expand the cores’ capabilities and capacity to support Duke University’s research needs. The Chesterfield is located at 701 W. Main Street, in the heart of Durham’s Innovation District.
These state-of-the-art labs will allow the cores to provide the best possible sequencing, proteomics and metabolomics resources for researchers at Duke and around the world. The cores expect to continue adding new instruments and technologies to both core facilities in the coming years to respond to the needs of Duke researchers, boost overall sample capacity, and reduce turn-around time.
- Both cores will remain open for business during this transition and do not expect any disruptions in services.
- Both cores will continue to provide direct contact with researchers on campus. Core facility faculty and staff will be available during and after the transition for face-to-face consultations in the CIEMAS building or the Chesterfield building according to your preference.
- Sample drop-off options for both cores will be available on campus in the CIEMAS building room 2208B in early July or researchers may also drop off samples downtown to Chesterfield.
- All Do-It-Yourself services will remain in the CIEMAS building.
