Our facility at the UC Metabolic Diseases Institute

The University of Cincinnati Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center is a comprehensive resource for the phenotypic characterization of mouse models pertaining to the study of diabetes and its complications. The Center is one of multiple Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIDDK).

Our mission is to advance medical and biological research by providing the scientific community with standardized, high quality metabolic and physiologic phenotyping services for mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related disorders.

We specialize in the immunological aspects of Type I diabetes, measurement of various glucose and lipid metabolism parameters relevant to Type II diabetes as well as diabetic complications such as heart disease and obesity.

 

With the growing obesity epidemic, diabetes is becoming increasingly common. Accordingly, many Metabolic Diseases Institute scientists are working to understand the etiology of this disease with the ultimate goal of developing better treatments. For example, scientists are involved in preclinical and clinical research to study and optimize islet transplantation as a means of insulin replacement for people with diabetes. Such projects benefit from proximity to the University of Cincinnati Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center (MMPC). This Metabolic Diseases Institute-based facility provides comprehensive services for the characterization of mouse models pertaining to Type I and Type II diabetes.

The University of Cincinnati Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center is supported by NIH grant DK059630
