IMBA is committed to the success of its research groups. We provide strong administrative and scientific support that includes a broad array of cutting-edge services and facilities.

Core resources are managed by technical leaders who evaluate and implement a wide range of novel technologies, instrumentation, and techniques. These professional staff scientists also train users, help with experimental design, and disseminate expert knowledge. They tailor their expertise to individual research questions and are available at any stage of investigation.

IMBA scientists are not billed for core services, except for certain experiment-related consumables, so experiments can start almost immediately. Access to these world-class facilities allows IMBA scientists to rapidly generate, interpret and present compelling, high-quality data. This accelerates the pace of their research and gives them a competitive edge.

Below, you can find further information on the services and facilities available to IMBA Research Groups.

Core Facilities


The Mechanical Engineering Center assists scientists in any hardware challenge: designing and building prototypes, robotics or any custom-made experimental setup that requires expert skills and professional tools to translate ideas into custom-made products in the service of discovery.

Vienna BioCenter Core Facilities

The Vienna BioCenter Core Facilities (VBCF) offers state-of-the-art research infrastructure and scientific services to academic research institutes and companies in the field of Life Sciences at Vienna BioCenter and beyond. Our goal is to provide scientific services that enable innovative research at the VBC and provide a competitive locational advantage to all researchers on campus. This VBC model was and will be the solid foundation to make breakthrough discoveries at the Vienna BioCenter.
