(example: confocal microscope at USCB, SC INBRE II) Direct support, targeted to specific programs/events Indirect support, through project funding 2) Role of INBRE-supported core facilities in research training networking and access to scientific resources formal workshops facility tours for groups of students (i.e.: from PUIs) visits to PUI campuses by core facility directors

direct, hands-on training experiences for students Claflin University: NMR Facility 700 MHz NMR acquired with DoD support Space construction/renovation and outfitting: Claflin University Joint SC INBRE II/EPSCoR support for personnel: Dr. Arezue Boroujerdi: SC INBRE hire and target faculty, SC INBRE II Dr. Raj Bhaskaran (NMR Facility Director until 2014) a postdoctoral fellow a full time technician SC INBRE III partially funds the renovation of space in the NMR facility for a biological sample prep lab (ongoing) Other than the A&R contribution listed above, the Claflin NMR facility is now independent of SC INBRE support

Dr. Scott Argraves, MUSC (PGF Director) From: Dr. Raj Bhaskaran, Clemson CI Symposium - Feb 13, 2013 NMR Facility clients outside of South Carolina: The University of Missouri, Columbia, MO University of Illinois College of Medicine, Rockford, IL University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR University of Madras, Chennai, India Seattle Biomed, Seattle, WA From: Dr. Raj Bhaskaran, Clemson CI Symposium - Feb 13, 2013 Hands-on training at the NMR facility, Claflin University 2011: 2 undergraduate students 2012: 9 trainees 7 undergraduate students; 1 graduate student;

1 postdoctoral associate 2013: 12 trainees 10 undergraduate students; 2 graduate students 2014: 19 trainees 14 undergraduate students; 4 graduate students; 1 staff Role of Core Facilities in Research Training Core facilities provide training in the utilization of equipment and techniques to students and other scholars, through: Summer REU programs Formal courses/workshops Project-specific training as a part of SC INBRE-funded

project Guided tours and demonstrations MUSC Proteogenomics Facility REU Organized in conjunction with the general MUSC Summer Research Experience for Undergraduate Students One or two students per year, selected by a competitive process Students come from any PUI in the state, URM students are strongly encouraged to participate 8-week hands-on training in genomics and bioinformatics, culminating in a poster presentation at local symposium Publication and other presentations possible, depending on student performance and nature of project

Workshop sees 30 - 50 participants annually, from SC and beyond. In 2015: 33 participants from 5 US states and two foreign countries (Austria and Nigeria) Invited keynote speakers present daily seminars complementing workshop activities 5 full days of hands-on training from specimen preparation and processing, to confocal imaging, to data analysis, under direct guidance from instructors Participants work with provided cell/tissue samples or bring their own samples to process: therefore, at the end of the workshop, participants may have conducted an entire experiment on their own materials Co-supported by COBRE and INBRE funds and cosponsored by host institution Industry participation/support

Training as a part of SC INBRE funded projects (i.e.: Bioinformatics Pilot Projects and USC MCF/MUSC Proteogenomics facilities) Core facility personnel provide one-on-one support and training to students involved in SC INBRE projects Core co-directors/managers work personally with investigators and their students to develop and conduct research projects All Bioinformatics Pilot Projects that make use of these core facilities must include a letter of support from core directors Additional considerations/challenges Sustainability: how much self-support is

reasonable, and what is the true cost of selfsupport? Core facility utilization by PUI faculty and students Tracking of students that receive training at core facilities
