Open Access Initiative

Updated: June 12, 2018

The Chicago Biomedical Consortium fosters collaborative efforts among the three CBC Universities: The University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Northwestern University. As part of these efforts, the CBC aims to serve as an information center for researchers seeking access to specific facilities and services available in the Chicago area.

With the help of the CBC, investigators can now use core facilities at all three CBC universities at “in house” costs. CBC University Provosts have signed a pioneering Memorandum of Understanding (Open Access Initiative) that allows researchers from the three schools to access a partner’s core facilities without paying additional F&A charges.
