1) Study murine models of AKI
Check out the FAQ for the Small Animal Microsurgical Core
2) Small animal imaging (https://www.uab.edu/cores/ircp/saif)
3) Determine renal physiological changes in AKI

This core specifically provides 
  • Expertise in development and training in the use of rodent models of AKI
  • Multi-modality small animal imaging sub-core that provides state-of-the-art molecular imaging (functional, structural and metabolic imaging)
  • Physiology sub-core that provides expertise and training for studying renal function on whole kidney and at the single nephron level
  • Technical expertise in isolation of primary renal and vascular cell in culture
