Core Services

Made to order peptides

The Institute of Basic Biomedical Sciences is home to several centralized fee-for-service facilities open to all researchers at Johns Hopkins and beyond. Visit the links below to learn more about the cutting-edge technologies available.

Core Services Supported by IBBS

  • Centralized Services for Metabolism Research (CSMR)

    Offers shared equipment for rodent metabolic testing in controlled laboratory environments critical for accurate assessment of whole-body metabolism and animal behavior. CSMR provides 15+ years of JHM faculty experience in rodent behavior, metabolic testing, and data analysis.

  • The Single Cell & Transcriptomics Core

    Offers Affymetrix hybridization and analysis services and databases for all experiments performed at the facility. A variety of software analysis packages and individual consulting is available.

  • Network Office

    The Network Office provides computer, software, and server support to the Institute for Basic Biomedical sciences and the Basic Science departments.

  • Transgenic Core Laboratory

    Offers services including basic transgenic mouse development to cryopreservation and derivation of new mouse ES cell lines.

  • Chemical Screening at ChemCore

    Offers a structurally diverse compound repository and high-throughput robotics laboratory services. ChemCore scientists will work with clients to help them optimize their enzymatic and biologic assays for 96- and 384-well formats. Operated by the High Throughput Biology Center.


Other Core Services Administered By IBBS Departments

  • Microscope Facility

    Since 1989, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Microscope Facility has provided light, fluorescence and electron microscopy services to hundreds of users throughout Hopkins community and the local area.

  • Biomolecular NMR Center

    Research facility, encompassing the Johns Hopkins University and School of Medicine. Comprises six NMR spectrometers – four of which equipped with high sensitivity cryogenic probes – for carrying out liquid state high-resolution NMR studies of biological macromolecules.

  • Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry

    Provides extensive mass spectrometry services for analyzing protein mixtures and purified proteins. Protein profiling using two-dimensional gel analysis and fluorescent labeling is also available.

  • Sequencing and Synthesis Facility

    Offers DNA and protein sequencing services as well as custom oligonucleotide and peptide synthesis and HPLC purification.

  • Multiphoton Imaging Core

    The Multiphoton Imaging (MPI) Core in the Department of Neuroscience provides instrumentation for analyzing protein localization, protein dynamics, and protein-protein interactions with high resolution.

  • Eukaryotic Tissue Culture Facility

    The Eukaryotic Tissue Culture facility supports JHMI researchers with the culturing of insect and mammalian cells.

  • Slides Production Facility for Microscopy

    The Slides Production Facility core produces poly-ethylene glycol (PEG) passivated glass and quartz slides for microscopy.

  • The Beckman Center for Cryo-EM

    The Beckman Center for Cryo-EM at Johns Hopkins was established to provide cutting edge cryo-EM to the Johns Hopkins and regional communities.

  • X-ray Crystallography Facility

    The X-ray Crystallography Facility is a fully equipped X-ray laboratory that is maintained as a departmental facility and staffed by a full-time manager.

  • Pharmacology NMR Facility

    To facilitate research involving small molecules, the Department maintains a Bruker Avance III 500 MHz NMR spectrometer equipped with an autosampler. The automation is configured for a convenient queue up of common 1D and 2D experiments.
