The Advanced Coal and Energy Research Facility provides for research and development of technologies relating to clean and sustainable utilization of fuels. It is a pilot-scale combustion test facility designed specifically to address the growing need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. ACERF is a greenfield pilot-scale (1 MW, thermal) research facility designed […]
The mission of the Washington University DDRCC is to advance research on the pathophysiology of and host-environment interactions in digestive diseases. Tissue imaging and image analysis techniques are essential tools for visualizing the spatial relationships of different cell types, and studying cellular components in the liver and gastrointestinal tract. State-of-the-art histologic, immunohistochemical, tissue imaging and […]
The goal of the core is to provide primary cells and cultured airway epithelial cell preparations from human, mouse and other species for the study of epithelial cells, lung biology and lung diseases. The airway epithelial cell core provides investigators with primary culture preparations of human and mouse airway epithelial cells. We routinely procure human tissues from […]
The Alafi Neuroimaging Laboratory offers state-of-the-art equipment and software for imaging and scanning, and is open to Hope Center investigators and others.
This laboratory offers a range of analytical services for soil, sediment, water, and plant studies from both field investigations and laboratory experiments. The specific foci are elemental analysis of solids, composition of aqueous fluids, and nutrient concentrations in water samples and soil, plant, and sediment extracts. The facility trains users to operate the instruments but […]
The AMP Core Labs is a CAP/CLIA certified and HIPAA compliant resource that provides services in anatomic pathology.
The Animal Behavior Core (ABC) offers interested investigators a time-efficient, cost-effective opportunity to examine the behavioral consequences of gene mutations as well as assess the effects of specific drugs, experimental manipulations (e.g., neuronal loss), or altered development on behavior in laboratory rodents.
The Animal Model Research Core provides breeding and colony maintenance of rodent models used for nutrition-related research (e.g., animals with lipid abnormalities, atherosclerosis, obesity and diabetes), genotyping, histological analyses, biochemical measurements (plasma lipids, glucose, and hormones) and body composition analyses.
