Massey member subsidy program

As of January 1, 2012, VCU Massey subsidizes 25 percent of the cost of members’ core laboratory usage for the following Massey-supported, fee-for-service shared resources:

  • Biological Macromolecule Shared Resource Core
  • Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Core
  • Structural Biology Shared Resource Core
  • Tissue and Data Acquisition and Analysis Core
  • Transgenic/Knock-out Mouse Facility

Note that this subsidy is available only for Massey members. To receive this member benefit, please initiate core lab services using a VCU index code associated with your name. When you are billed for core laboratory usage, the CORES system will automatically split the invoice between your index code and a Massey account established for this purpose. You will be charged 75 percent of the published rate and VCU Massey will provide a 25 percent co-pay to cover the balance.

Please direct any questions or concerns about the member subsidy benefit to Paul Fawcett, Ph.D. at pfawcett@vcu.edu or 804-833-1959.
