Experimental Expertise (pdf) of our Faculty 

Our department is actively involved in the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) as we work together to increase translation of our biomedical research to improving the health of people of Indiana and beyond. Translation includes technology transfer and movement of basic research to clinical studies in humans.

Med Sci Imaging Facility
Our department is home to an imaging facility that includes a two-photon confocal microscope and an epifluorescent microscope with digital camera.

VisualSonics Vevo 770 High-resolution in vivo Micro Imaging System
