Vanderbilt CORES – iLab Partnership

In March 2013, iLab Solutions and Vanderbilt University signed a partnership to merge CORES Software with iLab's core facility management suite. This partnership brings together the two most sophisticated and broadly-used solutions for core facility management.  Over the course of this transition, the joint team will incorporate the best features of the CORES software into the iLab platform, while leveraging  Vanderbilt's academic perspective to help guide future development.

Over 900 core facilities at more than 70 research institutions in seven countries use either iLab or Vanderbilt solutions today. In addition to facilitating cross-institutional collaboration, the unified platform will also enjoy economies of scale that will enable more robust future software upgrades, exceptional implementation and user support services.
