The UIC Center for Cardiovascular Research collaborates with different research cores on the UIC campus and also has facilities directed by faculty members who are experts in particular research areas.

Among the most important are:

Physiology Core
Measurements of cardiac function in mouse, rats, rabbits and guinea pigs employ invasive and non-invasive techniques (echo-cardiography and telemetry).  Generation of models of cardiac disorders. 

Proteomics and Protein Chemistry
Protein ID, abundance, and post-translational modifications.  Isolation and purification of proteins. (R. John Solaro)

IRB Support
Institutional Review Board (IRB) Suppport for CCVR Investigators

Lipodomics

OSCORE
Oxidative stress core employing HPLC, and EPR.
