The Translation Core serves the needs of Indiana DRC affiliated investigators whose research programs require measurements in human subjects or tissues. The Core provides expertise in the design and performance of in vivo measurements for physiologic, translational and proof-of- principle studies in humans.
The Translation Core provides 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.
