In Vivo Surgery Core

The CFI/MRI funded In Vivo Cardiac Surgery Core Facility provides shared access to state of the art in vivo surgery. The intent of this core facility is to provide investigators the means of leveraging these skills “on demand” rather than having to hire, train and retain their own in-house surgeons.  

Key Points:

  • Highly experienced research/veterinary surgeon
  • Consistent high quality surgical outcomes
  • Teaches trainees advanced in vivo surgery and techniques
  • Performs advanced surgery for OHIRC labs that do not have such expertise thus avoiding needless personnel investment and wasted resources
  • Develops new in vivo surgery models or establishes models not yet on site
  • Troubleshoots / consults on grant submissions regarding in vivo model costs and feasibility
