The CPR occupies two research buildings (VCPR, Doyle) adjacent to the School of Veterinary Medicine. The buildings contain office space, lab space, lunch room and provides a homelike atmosphere (pets are welcome following guidelines set for by the Veterinary School). Dr. Borgens built the Center with an eye towards independence, so the Center has most of the equipment and facilities needed for most in vtiro and in vivo investigations.

Main instrumentation and capabilities:

Lab equipment
  • Andor/Nikon spinning disk confocal microscope
  • Atomic force microscope
  • Environmentally controlled inverted fluorescent microscope
  • Reflection microscope
  • In vivo and ex vivo electrophysiology
  • IR spectroscopy
  • Luminescent, fluorescent, UV plate readers and spectrophotometers
  • Cell and tissue culture hoods and incubators
  • Biologic safety hoods
  • Cryostats and histological processing
  • Animal behavior assessment
  • Electrospinning
  • 3-D printing
  • -80F and liquid nitrogen freezers
  • microelectronics fabrication
  • graphics design
