Services

The Translation Core will provide services that facilitate the conduct of research involving human subjects, including providing low-cost, high quality analyte measurements for a variety of hormones, cytokines, lipids and other analytes. Translation Core human studies services include metabolic phenotyping (e.g. GTT, clamp studies, tracer studies), and access to a biobank of human tissues and serum. We also have capacity to undertake specialized and customizable laboratory services, including bringing online assays not previously available at IU. The Directors are available to assist CDMD members at the study design stage to help produce well-designed sample collection protocols and methodologies to ensure the success of studies that use the services of the Core.
