Respiratory and Infectious Diseases

Open Main MenuClose Main Menu


Pilot project investigators, OCRID faculty, and other Oklahoma investigators may have limited animal research experience and limited biosafety level training in in vivo preclinical experimentation of respiratory and infectious diseases. In addition, these researchers will need in vivo validation of in vitro discoveries. As a result, consistent care, experimental procedures with pathogens in vivo, and animal husbandry are important for the success of the pilot projects, funding applications, and manuscript publication. Therefore, the objective of the Animal Models Core (AMC) is to ensure experimental consistency, compliance with animal welfare and pathogen safety regulations, and to provide training in animal model phenotyping and cutting-edge respiratory and infectious disease experiments.
