Health & Metabolism Research Core (HaMR, UAF)
Health & Metabolism Research Core (HaMR, UAF)

The Health and Metabolism Research (HaMR)  Core supports the Molecular Imaging Facility (MIF) to provide technical assistance, expert consultation and, state-of-the-art instrumentation for in-vivo and in-vitro basic, translational and clinical research. The Core supports Center investigators in the collection & processing of metabolic and physiological data using animal instrumentation. The Core includes a Molecular Imaging Facility that houses a research-dedicated Toshiba 1.5 Tesla MRI, two NMRs (300 and 600MHz), and a Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) instrument. This facility is identified as a clinical research center site within the Northwest Participant and Clinical Interactions Network (NW PCI).

Animal instrumentation services include technical support and expertise in methodologies for monitoring metabolism, via open-flow respirometry and biotelemetry, in hibernating species and laboratory rodents.
