On-site basic, clinical and general core services offer the latest resources for cutting-edge research support at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
The mission of the Biopathology Center is to support cutting-edge research and positively impact patient care through procurement, processing, banking, and distribution of high-quality clinically-annotated biospecimens
Biobehavioral Outcomes Core
The Biobehavioral Outcomes Core will assist investigators who want to incorporate behavioral assessments in their research.
Clinical Research Services
Clinical Research Services (CRS) is designed to be a portal through which clinical investigators access streamlined coordination of services necessary to initiate clinical research projects, regardless of funding source.
DNA Sequencing Core
The DNA Sequencing Core uses ABI dye terminator sequencing technologies for routine sequencing of plasmid and PCR templates.
Flow Cytometry Core
The Flow Cytometry Core lab offers several platforms on which to do flow analysis and/or cell sorting.
CRISPR / Gene Editing Core
The team of experts available through the CRISPR/Gene Editing Core at Nationwide Children’s, in collaboration with The Ohio State University, provides investigators at both institutions with CRISPR/Gene Editing services with reasonable turnaround times and at affordable prices.
Nucleic Acid Extraction Team
The Nucleic Acid Extraction Team is a part of the Biopathology Center at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
The Morphology Core Laboratory was established in 1997 and provides services in histology, electron microscopy, and confocal and laser scanning microscopy.
Cell Line Core
The Cell Line Core processes human subject samples and provides the researcher with cell lines or DNA, appropriate for downstream applications in a variety of human and molecular genetic studies.
Viral Vector Core/Clinical Manufacturing Facility
The Viral Vector Core supplies recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) vectors of superior quality to individual research laboratories.
Center for Clinical and Translational Science (OSU)
The Ohio State University Center for Clinical and Translational Science (OSU CCTS) is a collaboration dedicated to turning the scientific discoveries of today into life-changing disease prevention strategies and the health diagnostics and treatments of tomorrow.
