8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The College of Medicine Office of Research is hosting a CORE Facility Research Symposium.
The College of Medicine Research Office intends to create more awareness, and facilitate access to the presence, capabilities, and availability of UAMS high-value facilities among the Arkansas research community. The benefits of this symposium are envisioned to:
- Foster collaboration
- Increase facility utilization
- Stimulate Innovation & improve research
The symposium is free and open to the Arkansas research community. All researchers, students, faculty, and staff are invited and encouraged to participate!
The symposium will address the wide range of core facilities designed to advance basic, clinical and translation research. Core facilities are pay-per-use research laboratories or analytical services, which allow investigators access to equipment, technologies and services not available in their own laboratories.
Zoom information will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.
Meet a Few of Our Cores
The Brain Imaging Research Center (BIRC) conducts several research studies in which functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is used to determine areas of the brain that are activated during different behavioral tasks.
This core provides a wide range of services to analyze both murine and human skeletal tissue.
The Genetic Models Core provides state-of-the-art services to create novel genetically modified mice and cell lines. This core was created by expanding an existing transgenic mouse facility at UAMS, which has a strong record of producing transgenic mice.
The core provides a variety of standard pathological stains for histochemical analysis of tissues, including hematoxylin and eosin, special stains, and immunohistochemistry.
The Digital Microscopy Core operates and maintains computer controlled microscope workstations ranging from light to electron microscopy. The core also provides a range of sample preparation equipment for electron microscopy.
This core provides cutting-edge analyses of large datasets. The Bioinformatics Core has assembled a team of bioinformatics specialists with access to a state-of-the-art computational facility offering cutting edge analyses for genomics and proteomics experiments.
The DNA Sequencing Core provides researchers with sequencing data via an Applied Biosystems Model 3130XL Genetic Analyzer.
The Flow Cytometry Core Facility offers analysis of samples by traditional flow cytometry, full spectrum flow cytometry, sterile cell sorting, and imaging flow cytometry.
The Proteomics Core Facility provides protein characterization by mass spectrometry. This includes identification of unknown proteins, quantitative comparison of proteins in biological samples, and mapping of post-translational protein modifications.
