Diabetes Models Phenotyping Core
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.
Cellular and Molecular Biology Core (CMBC)
The Cellular and Molecular Biology Core (CMBC) – formerly the Adipocyte Biology and Molecular Nutrition (ABMN) Core – was established in 2006 with a focus on assessment of adipose tissue morphology and function. Since then, the Core has broadened its scope to meet changing needs, an now provides assistance in conducting leading-edge research in the […]
