The Metabolic Phenotyping Shared Resource (MPSR) provides advanced indirect calorimetry services, technologies and scientific consultation.

We collaborate with researchers to characterize metabolic phenotypes of rodent models with obesity, aging, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, and cancer.
