Metabolic and Cellular Phenotyping Core

The Metabolic and Cellular Phenotyping Core provides Diabetes Research Center affiliate investigators with precise measurements of hormone secretion, glucose metabolism, mitochondrial function and intracellular signaling components critically important in diabetes and related disorders. A unique feature of the MCPC is that it enables the study of cellular and (patho)physiological processes in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro by combining methods that span the provision, treatment and analysis of cells/tissue or whole animals.
