Core Description

An appreciation of cellular physiology and biochemistry is fundamental to understanding the many diseases that are associated with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  The primary goal of this core is to provide IDDRC users with the wherewithal to acquire such information.


  • Make available a broad array of consultative services and sophisticated techniques to IDDRC users
  • Counsel IDDRC users with regard to tissue preparation and cell culture techniques
  • Offer IDDRC users novel expertise involving live video-imaging, optical imaging and the generation of human induced pleuripotent stem cells

  • Neuropathology
  • Cellular Electrophysiology
  • Neuronal and glial cell cultures
  • Tissue processing and staining
  • Tissue microarray and laser capture microscopy
