Core Facilities

The CTSI invests in new resources for the benefit of the research community, supporting the launch and transition to cost recovery for new core services that address unmet investigator needs and create opportunities for translational research. Active cores receive initial startup support. After they are established, these cores remain affiliated with the CTSI and receive additional support via CTSI promotion, referrals and voucher support for services as appropriate.

Biobehavioral Core

Broad expertise in the application of human-validated assessment measures of behavioral concomitants of disease or therapeutic interventions.

Genotyping Core

Consultation and guidance in designing and performing genetics and pharmacogenetics studies, and targeted determination of genotypes on genomic DNA from biological samples.

Human Imaging Core

Infrastructure and support to facilitate research and educational activities using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology, with particular emphasis on translational MRI research in humans.
