Virtual Cell

The Virtual Cell (VCell) is a unique computational environment for modeling and simulation of cell biology. It has been specifically designed to be a tool for a wide range of scientists, from experiment cell biologists to theoretical biophysicists. The creation of biological or mathematical models can range from the simple, to evaluate hypotheses or to interpret experimental data, to complex multi-layered models used to probe the predicted behavior of complex, highly non-linear systems. VCell is developed by the National Resource for Cell Analysis and Modeling, supported by NIGMS.

Stem Cell Core

Established in 2006, the University of Connecticut (UConn) Stem Cell Core has substantially contributed to the Connecticut stem cell initiative by providing a central source of technologies and materials for research on human pluripotent stem cells: embryonic stem cells (hESC) and induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC). The Stem Cell Core is a collaborative effort. Genome Editing, The Cell Bank, and Pluripotent Stem Cell Reprogramming are currently located at the UConn Health campus in Farmington. The Genetics and Genomics Division, including the Chromosome Core, is located at UConn Storrs campus. Single Cell Genomics is based at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington. The UConn Stem Cell Core is funded by UConn and Connecticut State Stem Cell Research Program. With these crucial services, many Connecticut researchers have developed novel approaches to addressing fundamental biological questions and tackling deleterious diseases.

Research Tissue Repository Core Facility

The UConn Health Research Biorepository consists of de-identified tissue and/or blood samples and patient data obtained from consented patients coupled with a database of clinical and laboratory data. De-identified samples are available to researchers. Our goal is to develop a comprehensive resource that will procure, characterize and distribute high quality human specimens according to rigid protocols and ethical guidelines.

Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) Core

Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) is a technique used to lift specifically targeted kind of tissues or cells from a histological section, leaving behind unwanted tissues or cells that could contaminate the molecular purity of subsequent analysis. The UConn Health Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) Facility house three LCM machines and provides LCM technique training and service to all UConn researchers and external institutions. RNA and DNA can be recovered by dissecting fresh and fixed frozen or paraffin sections for molecular analysis.
