Core facilities at the RFHS include the latest imaging infrastructure (e.g., MR, whole animal fluorescence and 2-photon), small animal core facilities (e.g., CT, PET-MRI), lentiviral application support, transgenic mouse expertise (e.g., CRISPR-Cas9 editing) and proteomic/metabolomic/epigenetic approaches and associated bioinformatics. The College of Pharmacy is also home to the Pharmaceutical Analysis Lab (P.A.L.) which has Shimadzu and Waters HPLCs as well as single and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, Real-Time PCR, clinical chemistry analyzer and an AKTA FPLC.
