The NHLBI Murine Phenotyping Core carries out physiologic and behavioral testing in a diversity of mouse models for NHLBI and other NIH institutes.
Testing Areas include the following:
- Cardiovascular Phenotyping
- Metabolic Phenotyping
- Pulmonary Phenotyping
- Neuromuscular Phenotyping
- Behavioral Phenotyping
- Exercise Physiology
- Advanced Imaging Modalities (whole body high frequency ultrasound imaging, vascular imaging, faxitron x-ray, and CT (coming soon))
