Translational Technologies Resource Center (TTRC)

The TTRC provides researchers with advanced resources to do imaging of whole organisms, tissues, and cells (magnetic resonance, magnetoencephalography, flow cytometry, histology, microscopy, and laser capture microdissection), investigate molecular biomarkers (genomics, proteomics), complete pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics studies and develop tissue repositories. The center also provides support to researchers to help them design studies and interpret results, technical support for acquiring data, and training in the use of these technologies for translational and clinical research.

As part of TTRC the Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Program provides vital services and support to investigators in the field. These services are available for pre-clinical, clinical and post-marketing phases of the drug development process.  The Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Program within TTRC makes the follow services available to researchers:

  1. Consultation on the design of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies
  2. Overall development and management of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies
  3. Input into the review of study proposals related to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic aspects
  4. Input into pharmacogenetic study design to explore the contribution of genetic variation to observed variability in drug disposition or response
  5. Identification of educational and training resources to enhance investigator skills and knowledge in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
