Facility Details

The RCPC provides an array of services to: 1) assess cardiovascular function in rodents, including genetically modified lines; and 2) to provide validated surgical models of human heart and vascular disease in order to probe disease mechanisms and to assess therapeutic interventions. We will work with investigators to design and implement the study along with any associated grant applications, animal protocol submissions and manuscript preparation. While the central focus of the facility is cardiovascular research, the imaging and surgical techniques employed are often useful to investigators in other fields. Our Core staff will work with you to assess your specific needs and to provide necessary training and scientific assistance in animal protocol preparation. The Core runs on a fee-for-service model. Accordingly, investigators will be responsible for the costs incurred for their projects and prior animal protocol approval by Penn IACUC.
