USF Scientific Core Facility Services
Register NowLearn about two core facilities available at the University of South FloridaUSF offers several scientific core facilities. These core facilities often provide analysis of samples using sophisticated instrumentation as well as experts who can provide training in the use of these instruments and associated software. Core personnel can also assist with proper experimental design and analysis of acquired data. You are invited to learn about the services of two of USF’s facilities, The Chemical Purification Analysis and Screening core and Research Methodology and Biostatistics core. These services are particularly relevant to USF CONNECT companies and faculty interested in drug/natural product/nutraceutical discovery and development as well as clinical trials workflows.Two of these facilities will be highlighted in this seminar hosted by USF CONNECT.The Chemical Purification Analysis and Screening (CPAS) core offers expertise in chromatographic separation, identification and quantification of chemical samples. Services include spectrometric and spectroscopic analysis (MS, CD, UV-Vis, FTIR), freeze drying, assisted microwave reaction, ADME screening (drug solubility evaluation and Parallel Artificial Membrane Permeability Assays for drug absorption testing; PAMPA) and high-throughput screening development capability using an automated liquid-handling workstation with a multimode microplate reader.Laurent Calcul, Ph.D., Director, CPAS(813) 974-6031 / email@example.com://www.usf.edu/arts-sciences/departments/chemistry/research/core-facilities/cpas.aspxThe Research Methodology and Biostatistics (RMB) core, comprised of 6 faculty members, provides research support services to USF-affiliated researchers at any stage of a project. Services include study development, clinical trial design/protocol development (for both IRB approval and implementation), sample size calculations, and statistical analysis including meta-analysis. Our goal is to create a safe collaborative environment in order to support the growing research needs of faculty and students at the Morsani College of Medicine and other locations. Collaborations on a variety of health research projects has resulted in over 120 published papers over the last five years.Ambuj Kumar, MD, MPH, Director, RMB(813) 396-9194 / firstname.lastname@example.org://health.usf.edu/research/rmbc/aboutUSF is an Equal Opportunity/ Equal Access/ Affirmative Action Institution.
