The Vice-Chancellor for Research, in partnership with the David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM), the Clinical & Translational Research Institute (CTSI), the Broad Stem Cell Research Center (BSCRC) and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC), has established the Shared Resources Consortium (SRC). The mission of the SRC is to distribute funds on a competitive basis to support instrumentation for existing and proposed Shared Resources (SRs) located on the UCLA campus.

The research enterprise at UCLA is highly dependent on the services offered by SRs. The future competitiveness of our investigators, and the international reputation enjoyed by UCLA, is enhanced by this important infrastructure. Our faculty must have timely access, at the lowest possible cost, to the services and instrumentation provided by SRs. At present, SRs are supported by recharges, grants and significant amounts of institutional funds. However, this model is increasingly under pressure because of the unreliability of the latter two revenue sources. Funding from the federal government is being reduced, and the UCLA Biosciences Core Funding (BCF) Program has ended. The UCLA SRC has been established to provide support for existing and proposed SRs on the UCLA campus.
