Research Resources Center (RRC) cores are back on campus to provide services and access to shared equipment (when possible), there are new guidelines issued by each core due to COVID19. Please reference each core’s new user guidelines posted online before requesting services, projects, or scheduling equipment. All questions and inquiries must be sent by email to respective core.

Meet the RRC

The Research Resources Center is a division of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Illinois at Chicago. RRC offers research faculty, staff, and students a diverse inventory of high-end scientific equipment as well as a wide range of services offered by 14 core facilities staffed with highly skilled scientists. In addition, our staff trains the research faculty, staff, and students to use the scientific equipment. Through the RRC, researchers also have access to statistical and computational support for data handling, data transfer, and interpretation of experimental results. The RRC Scientific Store supports research on campus by supplying over 1300 items while Scientific Instrument Shop can fabricate one-of-a-kind models and repair various as well as complex scientific equipment. The RRC also welcomes external users doing scientific research.
