University of Utah Facilities and Resources
CCTS Study Design And Biostatistics Core (SDBC): The biostatisticians of the SDBC can work with you throughout the research process. We perform the following roles:
» Clarification of research hypotheses and study aims
» Assistance in the selection of the most appropriate study design and outcome measurements
» Sample size/power calculations to evaluate trade-offs among sample size, power, and the minimum detectable treatment effects
» Grant application writing
» Applications for resources from the Utah Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)
» Advice regarding Data collection methods
» Conduct of statistical analysis on existing data sets
» Guidance to clinical and translational researchers who wish to carry out their own statistical analyses
» Interpretation of results of data analyses
» Collaboration in writing statistical aspects of manuscripts
» When appropriate, facilitating contacts with other methodologists/researchers in the University community
In all of the activities of the SDBC, we endeavor to impart knowledge of study design and statistical principles to our clinical and translational science collaborators.
Comparative Medical Center (CMC): The CMC facility is 55,000 square feet and houses a variety of animals, including rodents, rabbits, dogs, cats, sheep, pigs, calves, non-human primates and amphibians. The conventional facility of 25,000 square feet, which houses primarily non-rodent species, consists of 3 surgical suites, a necropsy room, and a 3,500 square foot biocontainment facility for sheep. Three surgical suites are equipped to perform sterile or non-sterile (acute) procedures.
David M. Grant NMR Center: The D.M. Grant NMR Center is a key resource of the University of Utah, which supports the needs of the research community by supplying access to state-of-the-art NMR instrumentation. The NMR Center currently has two instruments operating at 500 MHz (1H), with a number of NMR probes that support acquisition of NMR spectra for all of the common nuclei (1H, 13C, 2H, 31P, 19F, 10B, etc), and a new 800MHz instrument that provides superior resolution and sensitivity, supporting research in diverse fields including molecular biology and biophysics, synthetic organic chemistry, and materials science.
Dissolved and Noble Gas Laboratory: The Noble Gas Lab contains a mass spectrometer system capable of precise isotopic measurements of the noble gases as well as most other common atmospheric gases.
J. Willard Marriott Library: The J. Willard Marriott Library is the main library at the University of Utah, the flagship library for the Utah System of Higher Education, and the largest state-funded library in the five-state region of Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming.
Labs and Recharge Centers: List of core resource facilities located at the Colleges of Engineering, Mines and Earth Sciences, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
Nano Institute of Utah: The new state of the art Facility at 383 Colorow Building, was the site of a pharmaceutical company that the University of Utah recently acquired with all the major equipment in place available.
Nicoll Lab for Quaternary Geology and Sedimentology: The Nicoll Lab features a wet lab for sedimentary and geochemical analysis of soils and sediments, and a suite of GSSI Ground-Penetrating Radar Equipment for the subsurface imaging and analysis of shallow geologic strata, ice and snow, and built environments such as those made of concrete.
Research Administration Training Series (RATS): Research Education provides professional development opportunities for all faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars and members of the University research community. The RATS program allows you to learn, develop and improve your job skills and performance; maintain an understanding of best practices and current trends; network with colleagues, share experiences and increase your potential for advancement; earn Certificates of Achievement and professional association CEUs; and keep yourself marketable in the broad field of research administration. The Research Administration Training Series is provided as a free service for all University employees and students.
Shared Scientific Core Resources: The School of Medicine operates a number of core facilities that offer both advanced technologies and equipment. These facilities include Biostatistics, Genomics, Cell Imaging, DNA/Peptide, DNA Sequencing, Electron Microscopy, Flow Cytometry, Knockout/Transgenic Mouse, Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics, Microarray, Metabolomics, Bioinformatics, NMR, Protein Interaction, Small Animal Imaging, and CZAR (Zebrafish).
Spencer S. Eccles Health Science Library: The mission of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library is to advance education, research, and health care through information access, service and innovation. The library serves the educational, research, and clinical needs of health professionals, students and researchers at the Health Sciences Center, the University of Utah, the State of Utah and of the Internet.
Sutherland Moot Courtroom: The Sutherland Moot Courtroom is a fully functioning courtroom with audience seating for 220, a full jury box, bench for up to 5 Judges, AV podium, and tables for prosecution and defense.
Translational Technologies And Resources Core: The Translational Technologies and Resources Core (TTRC) Laboratory of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) provides specialized laboratory support for investigators with CCTS approved research protocols. Our primary mission is to provide technologies and instrumentation that are difficult to justify for individual research laboratories. Our services are currently focused on two main areas: extraction and purification of DNA from various sources and production of Epstein-Barr virus transformed cell lines. We also perform sample processing, ELISA and RIA assays on patient samples.
Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research (UCAIR): UCAIR is a division of the Department of Radiology at the University of Utah. Its aim is to be a center of excellence and innovation for medical imaging research. Learn more.
Utah Nanofab: Micro and nano fabrication and characterization services for on- and off-campus users, including thin film deposition and patterning (microfab), surface analysis and nano imaging, and access through our affiliated lab system, to a network of private labs on campus.
