Cores

Bio-Safety Level 3 Core

The Ragon BSL3 core provides biosafety level-3 laboratory space, training, and consultation for academic and industrial researchers working with risk group-3 pathogens, such as M. tuberculosis, SARS-CoV-2, Chikungunya virus, West Nile virus, Powassan virus, Japanese Encephalitis virus, Dabie bandavirus, Heartland virus and Bhanja virus.

Flow Cytometry Core

The Ragon Institute Flow Core provides access to a range of different instrumentation for flow cytometry, a technique that enables researchers to identify and quantify different cell types within a sample by measuring the presence of markers used to label the cells.

Human Immune System Mouse Core

Humanized immune system mice have played an essential role in medications and vaccine preclinical analysis and development for the last thirty years. These mice have also served as models for studies undercovering physiologic and pathologic mechanisms in vivo.

Microscopy Core

The Ragon Microscopy Core provides cutting-edge imaging technologies to answer fundamental questions in immunology and infectious disease research.
