How to Contact the Core

You probably had a hard time finding this. Sorry, but we do that on purpose, because MOST of the questions you might ask are answered on our FAQ pages. If you really looked on those pages, and you didn't find the necessary answer, then please call or email the Core Director, as listed below. If he doesn't answer, try calling the lab for technical (sequencing) questions, or for computer issues, call the Sample Clerk's number and ask for Christine. The Sample Clerks themselves (Doug, Jeff) can answer non-technical questions regarding drop-off hours, sample labels, computerized sample submission, etc.

You can contact:
The Core Director, Dr. Robert Lyons

The Sample Clerk
by telephone at 734-764-1461

The LSI Clerk
by telephone at 734-615-9168

The Core Lab itself

Or by mail or in person, at the following address:

PLEASE refrain from calling the Core Technicians to ask about the status of individual samples. Instead, go to the Core's home page and click on My Samples to check on your samples. Beyond that page's info, it takes considerable time to determine the status of individual samples, and the Core Technicians are very busy just processing samples.
