The updated facilities include new major equipment (e.g., NMR, GCMS, HPLC, flow cytometer, cell imager) for conducting research. The nearby School of Medicine has a next generation sequencing facility, an imaging facility, an animal care facility, and space for animal research. Marshall University is listed as an “R2” research institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
