Gnotobiotic Core

National Gnotobiotic Rodent Resource Center - Gnotobiotic Core

The CGIBD Gnotobiotic Core is divided into two components. The two components provide similar rodents and services, but are housed in seperate facilities and have seperate contact information. The North Carolina State University component is located on the NCSU campus in Raleigh, NC, while the University of North Carolina component is located on the UNC campus in Chapel Hill, NC.
