What We Do

COR²E is the old Biotechnology/Bioservices Center renamed, transformed, expanded, and just generally better! Fundamentally, we promote and support the growth of research at UConn by serving the University’s world-class research faculty (as well as the rest of the UConn community).

How We Do It

researchers

We manage a growing number of essential and state-of-the-art core research facilities, and provide assistance in the management of many others across the University.

detective

We provide portals (e.g., the site you’re on) into all research resources available to the University community.

partners

We sponsor events/activities that bring faculty together and break down academic silos.

new-programming-student

We build awesome interactive web software.
