Center for Molecular Studies in Digestive and Liver Diseases

Core Facilties

The Center is composed of four cores:


The Molecular Biology Core maintains a library of digestive and liver reagents, provides advice and assistance in molecular techniques, and subsidizes the cost of specific Penn-based technical services to assist Center members in their research projects.

  • Digestive Disease Reagent Bank (cDNAs and expression vectors)
  • Image analysis and gene expression quantification
  • Gene expression profiling (Affymetrix, quantitative real-time PCR)
  • Bioinformatics support
  • Biostatistics support
  • Biomarker facility
  • Human sample biorepository
