Part of the Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC), the Cell Imaging and Analysis Facility Core supports researchers studying the mechanisms by which environmental toxins affect tissues, cells, and subcellular organelles. The Facility Core helps researchers:
- Determine the damage resulting from exposure to environmental toxins and other treatments by providing expert pathological analysis from an experienced Veterinary Pathologist.
- Acquire high-resolution images of zebrafish and other models by providing instrumentation, analysis software, infrastructure and technical assistance.
- Quantify the activation state of signal transduction pathways by developing advanced methodology using flow cytometry, microscopy and mass spectrometry.
- Isolate specific cell populations from cell culture, blood and tissue by providing instrumentation and technical assistance.
