One of the three core facilities supported by the Mayo Translational PKD Center, the Model Systems Core develops and makes available PKD model systems and technologies, which are used to evaluate potential therapies and determine the function of PKD proteins.
Model systems in the core include C. elegans, rodents and zebrafish. The core builds on existing Mayo Clinic expertise in these particular organisms — especially as in vivo models.
