UBC is home to advanced research facilities and equipment. These can often be accessed by companies and external research groups.
The Institutional Program Office's Infrastructure Database serves as an inventory for CFI-funded infrastructure and allows researchers from UBC sites, other institutions, non-profit institutes, and industry to search for specific equipment currently available in use at UBC. The database is intended to be a tool to maximize the use of CFI-funded infrastructure, encourage sharing of research infrastructure amongst researchers, and facilitate collaborations. The database is an ongoing work in progress, and not all CFI-funded infrastructure is currently in the database, but more equipment is being added all of the time.
The CFI Research Facilities Navigator
The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) provides extensive support for research infrastructure. The CFI Research Facilities Navigator is a searchable online directory of funded research labs and facilities open to working with businesses to meet their research and innovation needs.
UBC IMAGING LABS
UBC Imaging Labs is a joint initiative of the Bio-Imaging Facility, the Centre for High-Throughput Phenogenomics and the Materials Engineering Electron Microscopy Lab. It brings together the capabilites of the three labs to provide simple access to world-class facilities, combining state-of-the-art equipment with exceptional services, research knowledge and technical expertise.
