Mouse Physiology Laboratory

The Mouse Physiology Laboratory is dedicated to the phenotypic assessment of mouse and rat models of disease using a wide variety of integrative approaches. Our aim is to provide a cost effective means for investigators to reveal important functional aspects of their mouse and rat models without having to individually invest in hiring skilled personnel and in the purchase of expensive instrumentation. We will work with you to design and implement the study along with any associated grant, animal protocol and manuscript preparation. The laboratory has collaborated with dozens of investigators at UCLA and other institutions worldwide on a wide range of studies leading to numerous peer reviewed publications.

Assist with the phenotypic assessment of mouse and rat models of disease using a wide variety of integrative approaches.
