Research Facilities


Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility (AMRIS) is a state-of-the-art NMR facility for high-resolution solution NMR, solid-state NMR, microimaging, animal imaging, and human imaging.


The Cell and Tissue Analysis Core (CTAC) maintains high-end instrumentation as well as standard microscopy systems for the acquisition and analysis of bright field, ultrasonic, intravital, fluorescent, and bioluminescent data from both in vitro and in vivo experimental models.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery Lab

The Stereotactic Radiosurgery/Biology (RSB) Lab within the MBI-UF building contains a computer-controlled six Mev linear accelerator for use in cerebrovascular, cancer and fundamental cell and molecular research. To the best of our knowledge, this is still only full-time radiosurgery-biology research laboratory of its kind in the world.

Vector Core Lab

The primary role of the Vector Core Laboratory is to provide the service of generating gene therapy vectors. The Vector Core currently services 5 NIH program project grants worth over $25M and produces over 400 preps per year. In addition, the Vector Core serves a training role for students associated with those programs.
