Metabolic Molecular Phenotyping Core

norc-slide1

The Metabolic Molecular Phenotyping Core provides cutting edge nutritional biochemistry methods and molecular biology techniques for nutrition research.


The goals of our Core are to encourage and facilitate the use of biomarkers for nutritional epidemiological and intervention studies, to provide access to state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to bench scientists, and to provide cost-effective assays for investigators without lab facilities. The Core also provides training for students and postdoctoral fellows. This Core is split between two locations, one at Chapel Hill and one at Kannapolis. This way we are able to provide a wide array of instrumentation and support investigators at either location.
