Provides a centralized state-of-the-art resource for large and small animal image-based experimental research with "turnkey" operation.
Central location facilitates the utilization of imaging centers (i.e. MR, PET) for translational research by minimizing transfer distances between surgical/fluoroscopy resources and other imaging centers.
Provides study design guidance along with vast image-based translational research knowledge and expertise.
Provides assistance to investigators to hasten regulatory compliance issues.
Provides assistance, as needed, for surgical interventions, anesthesia monitoring, and long term monitoring of animals to improve animal welfare.
Cost effective means for investigators to move their research towards clinical translation.
