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


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.


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


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


We build awesome interactive web software.


Jeremy Balsbaugh



Jeremy was appointed Director of COR²E in January 2024 after serving as the Associate Director since October 2022.  He simultaneously serves as the current and founding Director of the Proteomics & Metabolomics Facility, a biological mass spectrometry resource housed within the Center that he helped to establish in 2017.  He brings 10 years of experience in successful core management from leadership positions at UConn and the University of Colorado at Boulder.  His goals as Director are focused on improving and expanding research support to the UConn community and spearheading new opportunities for UConn faculty to benefit from the expertise and advanced instrumentation available in COR²E.
