Behavioral Phenotyping Core Facility

    Equipment/facility: Facility

      Description

      The Behavioral Phenotyping Core (BPC) helps investigators examine their mice and rats for changes in behavior. BPC’s mission is to make available to funded research projects a facility to determine the behavioral effects of genetic manipulations, potential pharmaceuticals, aging, and other manipulations upon normal behavior, and the learning and memory capacities of rodents used as model systems. We can also work with PIs needing to gather pilot data.
