Biomarker Analytic Research Core (BARC)

The Biomarker Analytical Research Core (BARC) is the central translational technologies laboratory. Patient samples that are handled on both campuses are routed through the BARC. The main analytic functions include stable isotope dilution assays, radioimmunometric assays, biomarker and substrate analyses, and sample/DNA processing. In addition, we provide high-throughput analyses using mass spectrometry and other methods for a wide range of analytes. Contact Administrator
Biomedical Informatics (RIC)

The Research Informatics Core (RIC) supports the clinical data pipeline for Einstein and Montefiore. This provides informatics infrastructure, tools, and standards that optimize collection, retrieval, integration, sharing, processing, and communication of biological, clinical, and environmental data for clinical and translational research. The RIC is a trans-disciplinary service that supports all investigators with the entire life-cycle of information processing for translational research across the diverse spectrum of translational and outcomes research.

Biorepository Core (BIOR)

Patient-derived specimens are essential to research in genomics, proteomics, and biomarkers. This core provides banking for biological fluid and tissue specimens as well as human DNA and RNA. BioR provides secure archival sample storage as well as clinically-annotated specimen biobanks for defined research projects. Samples can be banked by an individual PI or by a consortium of investigators. The facility works under the best practices set out by NCI and ISBER (2006) for collection, storage, and retrieval of human biological materials for research. Contact Administrator
Biostatistics (BERD)

The BERD Core is comprised of faculty with expertise in clinical trials, population-based research, and genetic analytic methods, and who provide a wide range of expertise, including study design, biostatistics analyses, and novel methodologies. The resource provides statistical and epidemiologic, support, collaborates with investigators, and identifies new problems and statistical method solutions. Walk-In Biostatistics Consulting is available on both campuses, where investigators can drop by and receive advice about their projects from statisticians. Contact Administrator
