Abstract

The present proposal aims to implement a core facility that will provide services to the research community of this university, as well as to researchers working at other institutions. Facilities are currently being established in four separate themes: 1) Biological Imaging with two photon microscopy to study living cells and Bioluminescence system to perform in vivo animal images; 2) Cell sorting by flow cytometry; 3) Genomics with next generation sequencing; and 4) Proteomics and mass spectrometry. An area of approximately 200 m2 is being prepared for CEFAP- USP, located at Institute of Biomedical Sciences. Six research specialists are being hired to manage and operate the equipment. We expect these efforts will provide feasible means to support researches of the community of this university, and of the state of Sao Paulo, as a whole, which will improve the quality of the scientific production of our scientists.
