Facilities and Services
The Colorado State University CTRC includes the Proteomics and Metabolomics Core, Pharmacology Core, and the Natural Animal Models Core. All services are provided as fee-for-service resources.
Natural Animal Models Core
Contact Wayne Jensen for more information.
The CU Cancer Center Pharmacology Shared Resource (PSR), located at CSU's Flint Animal Cancer Center was established to work with researchers and clinicians in a collaborative manner to design and implement studies to measure xenobiotics (drugs, toxicants, natural products, etc.) in biological systems and matrices. Contact Dan Gustafson for more information.
Proteomics and Metabolomics Core
The Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility is located in the Microbiology building on the CSU main campus. Our mission is to serve as an enabling resource for research and development by providing access to state of the art analytical instrumentation and expertise. The primary focus of the laboratory is on biological mass spectrometry of both proteins and metabolites. We support the clinical research community through discovery based workflows as well as targeted assays for biomarker validation. Contact Jessica Prenni for more information.
Available services include consultations regarding general study design, sampling methodologies, sample size calculations, analysis recommendations, wording of analytical methods sections for grant applications, recommendations for data entry tools basic and advanced statistical analysis, interpretation of statistical analysis and presentation of results for reports. Contact Sangeeta Rao for more information.
Available services include consultation on laboratory and sample preparation for next generation sequencing libraries, genome assembly, RNA transcript assembly, read alignment, metagenomics analysis, tailored software development, bioinformatics training and mentoring, and interpretation of results. Contact Mark Stenglein for more information.
CCTSI is supported in part by Colorado CTSA Grant UL1 TR001082 from NCATS/NIH. An Institute at the University of Colorado Denver.
