Core C: Physiological Assessment


Elisabeth Barton


Critical to the evaluation of potential therapeutics (pharmacological, gene, or cell therapies) are sensitive and repeatable physiological assessments of muscle function applied to mouse models of dystrophy. This research core that performs ex vivo, in situ, and whole animal assessments of muscle integrity and function. This core not only supports the needs of the projects within the center, but serves as a national resource for performing functional evaluation of potential therapies for the muscular dystrophies.
