Biophotonics Core Facility
The Biophotonics Core Facility provides cutting edge technology for the study and manipulation of biological samples using light, including long-term in-depth imaging of live tissues and the technology to probe at the molecular level for protein-protein interactions within live samples.
Cell Analysis Core Facility
The Cell Analysis Core Facility provides centralized services, training, access, and support to researchers in the usage of flow cytometry equipment and related services including technical training opportunities.
Computational Systems Biology Core Facility
The Computational Systems Biology Core Facility provides computational support for basic and translational health research, including computational infrastructure to support modeling and simulation of biological systems, live cell imaging, and protein biomarker research.
Genomics Core Facility
The Genomics Core Facility prepares and sequences DNA libraries for Next Generation Sequencing, including whole genomes and whole transcriptomes. It also prepares nucleic acids from single cells for genomic analysis.
Nanotechnology and Human Health Core Facility
The Nanotechnology and Human Health Core Facility focuses on the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials for imaging, labels for bioassays, and active targeting for in vivo or in vitro diagnostics.
Proteomics and Protein Biomarkers Core Facility
The Proteomics and Protein Biomarkers Core Facility is focused on capillary liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS) and -tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) to identify, characterize, and quantify proteins.
Stem Cell Core Facility
The Stem Cell Core Facility provides access to a streamlined, IRB-approved consenting process for acquisition of patient samples and generation of pluripotent stem cells and stem cell-derivatives for basic and preclinical research.
