Based on the Center’s research programs, five enabling biology and technology platforms have been identified that are crucial for the pursuit of the projected research. Three platforms are needed to harness the Centers specialized technologies: Phenomics, Rodent Metabolic Phenotyping and Computational Chemistry & Molecular Pharmacology.

In addition, two new platforms are being established: Single Cell Omics and Metabolomics. The enabling platforms are essential to advance the Center’s basic research questions and to ensure that the Center has a competitive edge and stays at the forefront of specific technological areas of major importance for the different research areas and will empower the scientists to accelerate their discovery and innovation efforts.
