BRCF Funding Resources

There are many funding opportunities available across the university and beyond. Highlighted below are some that are most applicable to the BRCF.

Funds Available to U-M Researchers Exploring Problems in Aging

The Nathan Shock Center for the Biology of Aging has subsidy funds available to help U-M faculty members purchase services from U-M research cores.

The funds may be used to help pay a portion (50%) of the costs at any U-M core that has user fees or recharge rates. The research project must address questions related to the physiology, cell biology, genetics or molecular biology of aging.

Example Cores include:

  • Protein Structure Core
  • DNA Sequencing Core
  • Metabolomics and Obesity Center
  • Center for Molecular Imaging
  • Affymetrix and DNA Microarray Core
  • Center for Chemical Genomics
  • shRNA Library Core
