Analytical Resources Core (ARC)
We enable cutting-edge STEM research and development programs by providing access to analytical instrumentation, expert guidance, research training and services to CSU and the broader community. We aim to foster a collaborative, inclusive learning and service environment where researchers can obtain valuable data and insights driving scientific progress and new discoveries.
ARC-MMA, ARC-BIO, and ARC-ISS have contributed to training over 300 faculty and students in the 2019 fiscal year alone, with over 2,600 users accessing these facilities along with the Emerging Innovations Core facilities.
