Instrument Collaborations and Training

Instruments in the Integrated Center for Genes, Environment & Health are available to qualified investigators at National Jewish Health and selected outside collaborators. Instrument training is provided at the Center for interested researchers after we have received a written description of a research plan showing related instrument usage. For more information, visit our intranet site on Spyderweb (accessible only on the National Jewish Health campus).
