On the Emory University School of Medicine Service Center/Core Labs website, you will find links to the School of Medicine supported Service Centers/Core Labs, as well as all of the Service Centers/Core Labs available at Emory University.
Biomedical Imaging Technology Center (BITC)
The Biomedical Imaging Technology Center (BITC) is a core facility of the School of Medicine at Emory University and a research center of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, a joint department of Georgia Tech and Emory University.
Emory Center for Systems Imaging
The Center for System Imaging (CSI) is a cross-disciplinary scientific, administrative, and educational home for imaging science at Emory University. The center is housed in 17,000 square foot newly-renovated facility on the 2nd floor of the Wesley Woods Health Center Building.
Emory Personalized Immunotherapy Center (EPIC)
Located on the 6th floor of Emory University Hospital (EUH), within the Emory Healthcare Blood Bank, construction of the EPIC Cell Processing Core compliant with FDA cGMP Phase I good manufacturing practices has been completed. This Cell Processing Facility will foster development of novel personalized cellular therapies for Emory patients facing catastrophic ailments and unmet medical needs.
The Emory University School of MedicineCore Facility for Flow Cytometry provides analysis and sorting services to the research community in and around the Emory University Campus. It also provides training and consultation services to investigators wishing to utilize the Core.
Integrated Cellular Imaging
ICI provides state-of-the-art light microscopy tools including confocal and live cell imaging, multi-photon animal and tissue imaging, widefield & deconvolution, super resolution, and image analysis. We provide consultations, expert training, and support for all our systems.
Robert P. Apkarian Integrated Electron Microscopy Core
Merged from the former Integrated Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility and School of Medicine Electron Microscopy Core, the Robert P. Apkarian Integrated Electron Microscopy Core is a university wide research resource core located in Cherry L. Emerson Hall on the Emory campus. The IEMC's operation is monitored by a User Advisory Committee and the University Core Facility Oversight Committee.
The goal of the center is to provide protein analytical services by cutting-edge mass spectrometry (MS). The main technology platform is microcapillary liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) for highly sensitive protein identification, posttranslational site mapping, and protein quantification. Numerous computational tools have also been developed for high throughput data processing. Our priority is to serve the needs of investigators at Emory University, but we are capable of serving outside users as well.
Rodent Behavioral Core Facility
The Rodent Behavioral Core provides planning, execution, and analysis of behavioral experiments examining activity, arousal, coordinated movement, learning and memory, anxiety, depression, seizure susceptibility, reward/reinforcement, and aggression in mice and rats. Additional tests can potentially be developed on a case-by-case basis. The Behavioral Core also offers several rodent surgical services and assistance in IACUC protocol preparation. Directed by Jason Schroeder, Ph.D. and David Weinshenker, Ph.D., the Core is located in the vivarium of the Whitehead Biomedical Research Building.
Transgenic Mouse & Gene Targeting Core
The Transgenic Mouse and Gene Targeting Core Facility (TMF) is a shared resource of the Emory University School of Medicine (SOM). It was originally established in 1998. The core acts to provide both state of the art equipment and expertise for the generation and characterization of genetically altered mouse models.
