Cardiometabolic Phenotyping Core (Lake Nona)

Overview of Services

The Cardiometabolic Phenotyping Core facility (CMPC) at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute provides researchers with a wide array of methodologies and techniques to evaluate cardiovascular and metabolic function in mice and rats. The CMPC also conducts specialized cardiovascular surgery to establish disease models in rodents. Imaging modalities (high resolution ultrasound & optical imaging) performed by the CMPC have utility to interrogate wide-ranging biological targets/disease indications. Centralization of this expertise and technology in the CMPC offers a standardized, efficient and cost-effective means to deliver high-quality phenotyping and surgical services. As needed, CMPC staff will assist in the design of experimental studies. Moreover, the CMPC staff will monitor the emerging needs of investigators and expand our repertoire of services accordingly.
