College of Medicine-Phoenix Research Cores

 

Overview of Services

The College of Medicine-Phoenix Research Cores is currently comprised of three distinct cores: Biomedical Imaging Core (BIC), Flow Cytometry Core (FCC) and Molecular Discovery Core (MDC).

 

The BIC provides the latest innovative imaging technologies along with advice on experimental design, training and analysis.

 

The FCC provides advanced cytometry, expert advice and project/panel design, training, data analysis, assay development/optimization and new marker characterization.

 

The MDC provides specialized technology for molecular imaging, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) for binding studies, kinetic data analysis, small molecule and/or fragment screening, and aggregation studies, as well as consultation on assay development and protein purification.

Our Mission

The overall mission of the Research Office is to support the research enterprise of the College of Medicine–Phoenix, stimulating all types of research and growing the sponsored projects portfolio by providing all forms of research infrastructure and resources. Our Research Cores are a direct reflection of that mission in as much as they provide centralized access to specialized, state-of-the art and high end instrumentation, with expert scientific leadership for experimental design, training and analysis to meet the needs of the research community.
