The MICPC Core provides state-of-the-art protein and RNA imaging and cell physiological analysis to enhance the diabetes-related research at the University of Michigan. The MICPC provides expertise, advice training and equipment for microscopic and morphometric analysis of both protein and RNA in biologic samples in support of research focused on diabetes and its complications or related endocrine and metabolic disorders. The MICPC provides access to a wide variety of microscopy, imaging and electrophysiology equipment that otherwise would be beyond the scope and resources of most investigators. The overwhelming majority of MDRC investigators who require such techniques rely on the MICPC to provide them and their staff with expert consultation, training and support for routine and advanced microscopy and image analysis for protein and RNA morphometric studies and for optogenetic and electrophysiology studies.
