The Research Core Revitalization Program (RCRP) is the second round of an initiative to strengthen campus research core capacities by supporting the upgrade, replacement or duplication of heavily used shared research resources. Shared instruments, equipment and other resources play a critical role in the research enterprise and typically have a limited lifespan. Although essential and highly used, these critical resources may not be eligible or competitive for federal and other external grant programs targeting new capabilities and technologies. Researchers across campus depend on the shared resources managed by cores, and reinvestment in these capabilities ensures continuity and productivity of our research enterprise.

Here are the 12 projects chosen for funding in Round 2 of the RCRP (2022):
