Massey member subsidy benefit

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

  • Flow Cytometry Shared Resource
  • VCU Lipidomics/Metabolomics Shared Resource
  • Structural Biology Shared Resource
  • Tissue and Data Acquisition and Analysis Core
  • Transgenic/Knock-out Mouse Facility Shared Resource
  • Microscopy Shared Resource

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 Rams FORCE 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 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 or (804) 833-1959.
