Mouse models are developed and maintained for use in preclinical testing of interventions targeting specific geriatric conditions. Mouse strength and mobility, body composition, cognitive testing, bone density, host defense and bladder function can all be assessed.
This facility assists investigators wishing to add biomarkers to geriatric research studies. Biomarker capacities include a BioRad Magpix Bioplex system, quantitative PCR and ELISA. Additional analytic capacities are also available in terms of measurement of dietary antioxidants and phytochemicals (e.g., polyphenols and metabolites), lipids, oxidative stress markers, and metabolomics.
