Scientific Description
VetCore is a Core facility with five sub-units in the fields of tissue archiving (VetBioBank), imaging from cell to laboratory animal (VetImaging) and the “Omics” sub-units Genomics, Transcriptomics and Proteomics.The Core Facility strives to provide a vibrant and stimulating environment that fosters communication and cooperation across different scientific disciplines, enabling synergies between like-minded investigators to be identified and further developed.The Core Facility functions as a multi-user resource dedicated to the development and application of various higher throughput technologies to aid in the discovery of biological markers. These types of technologies are quite expensive to operate and maintain, making it difficult for individual laboratories to invest in this type of infrastructure. The model for the Core Facility is to be a “one-stop shop" for these technologies providing researchers access to both the tools and our experienced staff.
