WVU Shared Research Resources

There is a variety of cutting-edge technology, equipment, instrumentation and other resources available to researchers at West Virginia University. All facilities and programs are staffed with knowledgeable personnel that have expertise with using the equipment and can provide training and support.

Research Computing

The Research Computing unit of Information Technology Services is dedicated to supporting, enabling, and advancing computational research at WVU. Research Computing provides cost-effective access to centrally managed high-performance computing (HPC), storage and virtualization services; high-speed networking via a science DMZ called Research Exchange (REX); and assistance to the WVU research community in the areas of computational science.

Shared Research Facilities

WVU Shared Research Facilities provide researchers with the opportunity to use cutting-edge instrumentation. SRF is open to all researchers, including WVU faculty, postdocs, and grad students. SRF oversees four primary areas of research designed to help researchers pursue interdisciplinary work on nanoscience, engineering, materials science, forensics, medicine and similar disciplines.

Health Sciences Core Facilities

There are a number of shared research facilities and laboratories available at the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center including facilities for microscope imaging, transgenic animal, flow cytometry, biospecimen processing, and genomics. These facilities have both user and service options. A full list of HSC core facilities can be found online.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility

Located in the Department of Chemistry, the NMR Facility at WVU is available to students, staff, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty. It includes three superconducting NMR spectrometers: one UnityINOVA 600 MHz (Varian), and two JEOL 270 MHz Eclipse.
