The Molecular and Genomics Core (MAGIC)
at the Ponce School of Medicine (PSM) was
created in 1995 to provide infrastructure
and technical support in molecular biology
techniques for basic and clinical research
projects. Supported by the NIH-RCMI Program,
this facility provides the research
community at PSM with a core laboratory that
offers access to highly sophisticated
equipment and technical support. The main
objective of the MAGIC is to help stimulate a
productive research environment by providing
intellectual and technical support and a
state-of-the-art infrastructure. The
availability of such resources is
fundamental to the development of new
projects and to the recruitment of new
faculty, as well as to facilitate the
continued productivity of our scientists.
Our aims are:
to equipment and facilities, and thus
continue to increase the application of
molecular biology, genetics, and gene
expression tools by investigators at
technical support and consultation.
faculty, staff, and students in
molecular research tools and techniques
available in MAGIC.
promote the development of new projects
and collaborations in areas such as
molecular biology, gene expression,
protein expression, development of model
systems, and human genetics.
MAGIC requires acknowledgements
of its contribution towards your research as
evidence of use and in order to keep our support.
Therefore, if our lab been a key component to the
conclusion of your investigation, please include the
following phrase in the acknowledgements sections in
your published articles, posters & presentations.
acknowledge the support of the Molecular and
Genomics Core (NIMHD Grant MD007579)".
