This symposium will feature speakers from four core facilities at UNC that focus on mouse model phenotyping.  The Mouse Cardiovascular Models Core includes an experimental surgical laboratory for high-throughput physiological phenotyping.  The Animal Clinical Chemistry and Gene Expression Laboratories provide blood chemistry tests, urinalysis, hematology, and other assays similar to routine clinical screens in humans.  The Animal Metabolism and Phenotyping Core of the UNC Nutrition Obesity Research Center allows the analysis of body composition with MRI technology, long-term evaluation of voluntary exercise, and other indices of energy expenditure and balance.  The Mouse Behavioral Phenotyping Laboratory, established by the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities, provides assays for motor and sensory ability, learning and memory, and other domains of function.
