The landscape in which cores find themselves today is in flux, in part driven by ever changing scientific focus, scientific technology as well as funding streams.The question commonly heard is if the role of shared research resources in support of biomedical research changing and if so what models of core structure, organization and management best meet the needs of the research community. In this panel discussion we hope to outline current models of core structures, discuss various approaches to organization, funding and management and look forward to see whether there are new models to consider which may better meet the needs or the research community.The discussion will open, free flowing with the views, thoughts, and questions of the audience fully addressed.The participants will leave the session with thoughts for reflection on the current core in which they work and developmental concepts for the future directions, structure and operationof their core.
