University Core (UC) Policy Term Definition

laboratories provide services or technologies essential to the overall mission of UTMB and its investigators.  A University Core should provide service to a minimum of five (5) UTMB Departments or Centers (typically serving a minimum of twenty-five (25) project investigators) or provide unique services, expertise or technology to the community.  A laboratory will be given the University Core designation by consensus of the University Core Development Committee.  Rates are based on direct costs only and can only include internal Core operating costs. Capital equipment depreciation may also be included but only in special circumstances with approval of the Vice President, Financial Accounting and Reporting.
