  • The Molecular Screening Shared Resource (MSSR) offers a comprehensive range of leading-edge high throughput screening (HTS) services including drug discovery, chemical and functional genomics, and novel methods for nano and environmental toxicology. The MSSR is an open access environment with investigators from UCLA as well as from the entire globe. Industrial clients are equally welcome as are non-profit entities.

  • Provides testing services, blood and blood cell products and other specialized services to research labs working with HIV and related viruses.

  • The Mitochondria and Metabolism Core at UCLA provides the scientific community with the necessary technical and conceptual resources for studying mitochondrial function. We provide access to Seahorse XF96 Extracellular Flux Analyzers and an Operetta High Content Imager, which users can schedule after training. Additionally, The Mitochondria Core provides a number of full service options for the design, performance, analysis and interpretation of fundamental mitochondrial assays.
