Overall, investigators interested in applying MS in their research approach the MS Center similar to how they would begin a collaboration with any other investigator. 

All projects begin with a consultation. During this meeting we will learn about your research project and discuss the most appropriate approaches and technologies available to answer your question.

Dependng on the biological question, scale of the project, types of approaches required, and available technologies, we pursue projects either collaboratively (most common) or via fee-for-service (for select projects).

Projects that require any level of customization or tailored method development are pursued collaboratively. This is the most common type of interaction the MS Center pursues.



Collaboration involves the partial or full funding of a Center Scientist dedicated to complete the project.



We work with investigators to complete a defined task using well-established, validated protocols.


Self Service

Appropriate for qualitative measurements using one of the self-service instruments and workflows.
