Welcome to the New York University Shared Instrumentation Resources website. This resource was created with information provided by schools, departments, and individual faculty members with the objective of providing NYU research investigators information on facilities that are potentially available to enhance their research and to facilitate collaborations. The hope is that this inventory will assist in the preparation of successful external grant proposals, publications in high profile journals, and support for educational activities at NYU.
