Faculty Profile


The core offers the services of clinical research coordinators. The Core provides BSL2 facilities for the processing, storage or molecular experimentation of human biological samples. Equipment and technical assistance for performing ELISAs, blood chemistry analysis, cell proliferation assays, autoantibody assays, nitric oxide (NO) measurements, reactive oxygen species (ROS) determination, proteomics, mitochondrial function, flow cytometry, cell isolation, Western immunoblotting, and cell cytokine secretion profiling are available. The Core can also help analyze data and prepare results for publication or grant applications.


Assay labs are located on 4th floor of the Research (Pankratz) Building in rooms R412, R413, R414, R417, and R427.
