Mouse Metabolism Core

Overview of Services

UCSF NORC Biomedical Mouse Metabolism Core  is specifically geared to measure a wide variety of metabolic parameters in mice, human tissues, and cultured cells. The information gained by studying mice, which are often genetically modified through use of Core C (Genetics and Genomics) and examined in conjunction with epidemiological and behavioral studies done in humans (Core A), is essential to understand mechanisms underlying metabolic disease risk, and the potential effectiveness of nutritional and pharmacologic approaches to ameliorate obesity and its consequences
