Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center

Lab mice

The University of Cincinnati Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center is a comprehensive resource for the phenotypic characterization of mouse models pertaining to the study of diabetes and its complications. The Center is one of multiple Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIDDK)

Our mission is to advance medical and biological research by providing the scientific community with standardized, high quality metabolic and physiologic phenotyping services for mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related disorders. 

We specialize in the immunological aspects of Type I diabetes, measurement of various glucose and lipid metabolism parameters relevant to Type II diabetes as well as diabetic complications such as heart disease and obesity.
