Metabolic Core (MMD-CIVMC)
The Molecular Metabolism and Disease Collaborative In Vivo Metabolic Core (MMD-CIVMC) at Michigan State University (MSU) provides state of the art instrumentation to MSU researchers as well as external organizations studying metabolic (and other) diseases in mouse models. The following instrumentation is housed in the Trout animal facility (a specific pathogen free facility) and the Biomedical and Physical Sciences Building (BPS):
- TSE Phenomaster / Labmaster Metabolic caging system
- Bruker Minispec LF50
- Procedure room 14

Our MMD-CIVMC personnel have over 19 years experience in the care and use of animals in research and provide expertise in many techniques used in animal research. Letters of support for grant applications plus information required for Animal Use Forms (AUFs) are provided upon request. There are scheduling calendars for each of the above pieces of equipment.
