CAMTraST is located in U-M’s North Campus Research Complex, a nearly 2 million-square-foot facility previously owned by Pfizer, Inc.
The complex provides crucial scientific core facilities, combined with an environment designed to foster transdisciplinary collaboration and innovation.
There are nine shared core research facilities for scientists’ use:
- Imaging Core
- Bioinformatics Analysis Core
- Biomedical Research Store
- DNA Sequencing Core
- Flow Cytometry Core
- Microscopy & Image Analysis Laboratory
- Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM)
- Animal Phenotyping Core
- Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory
CAMTraST has about 2,800 square feet of designated laboratory space and unrestricted use of 1,800 square feet of adjacent core facilities.
The University is committed to the humane and ethical treatment of research animals. At CAMTraST, animal husbandry is provided by ULAM staff under the guidance of supervisors who are certified as Animal Technologists by the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science. Veterinary care is provided by ULAM faculty members and veterinary technicians accredited by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM).
U-M is fully accredited by the American Association of Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC), and the animal care and use program conforms to the standards in "The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals," DHEW publ. No. (NIH) 78-23.
