Animal Studies

Users generally provide anesthesia and any surgery on their own animals. However animal anesthesia and surgery services studies can be contracted through the Vet Med Microsurgery Core. Their rates for animal handling/surgery are in addition to the the spectrometer use rates. Please ciontact Dr. Yi-Je (Jay) Chen at for more information.
