Core Technologies Unit (CT) includes ERRC's Research Data Systems (RDS), Scientific Information Resources (SIR), Microscopic Imaging (MI), Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and Nucleic Acid Facility (NAF) groups. The Unit provides ERRC research scientists accessibility to modern research instrumentation, sophisticated research data processing methodologies, and contemporary electronic research information resources. The Unit is funded by Indirect Research Cost (IRC) since it benefits all ERRC's CRIS projects.This assures proper planning and sufficient funds to meet commitments in multidisciplinary research provided to optimize MU programs. The RDS, MI, MRS, and NAF are coordinated by Lead Scientists and SIR an Administrative Librarian, to assure that ERRC scientists and engineers needs are met, priorities property set and problems resolved. The overall operation of the Unit is supervised by an assigned Research Leader who reports to the Center Director.
