Inhalation Exposure Core

The mission of the Inhalation Exposure Core is to provide a specialized scientific resource for the assessment of health impacts resulting from inhaled environmental constituents and evaluation of therapeutics for the mitigation of cardiorespiratory disease while serving as an educational resource for the technology comprising this service.  The Inhalation Exposure Core encompasses state-of-the-art facilities for the short- and long-term generation of precisely controlled atmospheres and delivery to both in vitro and in vivo laboratory animal models under the guidance of CNPRC Core and Affiliate Scientists. The Inhalation Exposure Core also supports the assessment of cardiorespiratory function and bronchoscopic collection of lung specimens for in vivo disease characterization, as well as response to clinical and preclinical therapeutics.
