The Phenotyping and Pathophysiology Core provides a broad range of services that aid researchers interested in utilizing murine models for kidney-related research. The structure of this Core is unique in that it performs a variety of kidney functions, non-invasive quantitative kidney images analysis, and experimental platforms for the testing of drugs and interventions.
Most importantly, this Core performs all these services in-house and directly oversees these studies. We have been very successful in providing these services not only to the local scientific community interested in kidney research, but also serving as a national and international resource.
We not only provide innovative services, but also plan to continue to develop, test and implement new methodologies that can be utilized by both the local Biomedical Research Base, as well as interested national and international researchers, to advance our knowledge about the mechanisms of kidney disease, and to develop and test potential therapies.
