VU/VUMC transition updates for Cores

As part of the VU-VUMC transition, the single C.O.R.E.S. billing system has been separated into two systems effective Jan. 7, 2016:  VUMC-C.O.R.E.S. and VU-C.O.R.E.S.  In addition, beginning in March 2016, several VUMC cores will begin to use iLab Solutions.  For a list of all cores, which system they will be using and other information about cores and the VU-VUMC transition, please refer to the FAQs in the VUMC Office of Research website

To help you through this multi-system transition, training sessions for all iLab/CORES users are available:
