The Mission of the CVRC Physiology and Surgery Core Laboratory is to provide a central resource of knowledge, skills, personnel, and equipment that allows investigators access to cardiovascular and other techniques to facilitate research.
The biomedical community utilizes the Cardiovascular Physiology Core Facility for ultrasound of mouse lower urinary tracts, lower urinary velocity volume measurements, and quantification of lower urinary tract metrics.
