Department laboratories are located on the first, second, and fifth floors of Wahl Hall East, and on the first and second floors of the adjoining Lied Research Building, and contain state-of-the art instrumentation. Additionally, the department operates the Electron Microscopy Research Laboratory, which is located in the basement of Lied, and is available to all investigators at KUMC. Also located in the basement of Lied and managed by the department is the Confocal Imaging Facility . Core departmental equipment is modern and extensive and includes a cooled CCD digital imaging workstation for light microscopy, a phosphorimaging system, a variety of centrifuges and other apparatus for a wide range of molecular, biochemical and morphological investigations.
These departmental core items are supported further by the Biotechnology Support Facility that uses state-of-the-art instrumentation for nucleotide and amino acid synthesis and sequencing and microarray analysis, and a Transgenic Core Facility that is housed in an adjacent animal care building.
