The Vanderbilt Mouse Kidney Imaging Core aims to provide access to traditional and advanced imaging methods for investigators from any scientific background. These include MRI, PET, SPECT, ultrasound, and optical techniques. The Core assists investigators at every stage of the imaging experiments. Our comprehensive service assists investigators with experimental design, institutional animal safety protocols, data acquisition and analysis. The Core provides scientific, technical, and educational resources for investigators to conduct mouse kidney imaging studies.
In order to get started, the Core has created a new project request form to introduce the investigator's project to our faculty and staff scientists. This initial contact will set up a meeting (or conference call) of the project P.I. and associated scientists with the Imaging Core directors and a selection of the staff scientists to define the potential utility of imaging techniques in the applicant's research program and to determine in what way we can help.
