Note – ICTS funding option
As of 2018, Hope Center Core users may be eligible to apply for a Just-in-Time (JIT) award from the Washington University Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS). Faculty members without established funding for their projects are encouraged to apply for JIT funding through the ICTS. Visit the ICTS JIT webpage for additional details.
The overall objective of the Animal Surgery Core (ASC) is to assist translation of scientific discoveries to rodent models and to facilitate development of new therapeutic strategies for nervous system disorders. The ASC provides access to core equipment and facilities, and expertise for surgery or protocol development.
Additionally, equipment in the facility is open to Hope Center investigators who complete appropriate training. Animal Studies Committee approval is required.
We always strive to improve services and resources offered by the Hope Center Cores. To provide feedback, see contact information below.
