Resource Centers

The majority of Beckman Institute activities are organized into Resource Centers, each of which has a tripartite mission within its particular area of research focus:

  • to carry out cutting-edge research
  • to advance research capabilities by means of the invention and development of new methods, instrumentation and materials
  • to establish, maintain and operate a user-friendly facility relevant and available to a broad cross-section of the research community, particularly at Caltech.

At present there are ten Resource Centers, listed below. By following any of those links, you will find a brief description of the Center, names and contact information for key people, and a further link to the Center’s own website which provides much more detailed information.

The Beckman Institute considers establishment of new Resource Centers on a biennial basis. The next due date for proposals will be March 15, 2025. Guidelines for proposal submission may be found by clicking the box below.
