Centre d’excellence

Baylor College of Medicine

The Baylor College of Medicine Nikon Center of Excellence housed in the Center for Precision Environmental Health (CPEH) provides state-of-the-art technology to support cutting edge research converging on epigenetics, cancer biology, birth defects and environmental factors that ultimately shape disease susceptibility and outcome. The Nikon platforms will be used to leverage imaging in a variety of model systems including cell culture models, zebrafish, C. elegans and mouse/human tissues and sections.
