Animal Phenotyping Core

The monitoring of animal behavior and physical presentation is key to understanding animal models of disease, as well as assessing the effects of therapeutic agents. The Animal Phenotyping Core supports both basic and translational research by providing a variety of tests to meet the researcher’s needs, including but not limited to ultrasound, measurements of social ability, memory and learning, and motor function.
