Director Enrico Gratton & Associate Anand Ganesan
The Imaging Core builds on UC Irvine’s leadership in imaging as reflected in the establishment of two P41 NIH-funded Biotechnology Imaging Resource Centers, the Laser Microbeam and Medical Program (LAMMP) housed at the Beckman Laser Institute (BLI) established in 1979, and the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics (LFD), established at UC Irvine in 2006.

The core combines the unique strengths of UC Irvine’s Genomics High-Throughput Facility with the Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics (IGB), a leader in interdisciplinary research. The mission of GHTF is to bring emerging nucleic acid technologies to UC Irvine and provide genome-wide analysis for clients interested in gene expression, regulation of gene expression, and genome sequence and variation. The GHTF was established in 1999 as a shared resource, affiliated with the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, with the goal of assisting UCI Campus and Medical Center investigators. Over the past several years, the IGB has also attracted significant funding from the NIH and the NSF to catalyze innovative research in genomics and bioinformatics and emerged as a national leader.
Systems Biology Core
Director Arthur Lander
The Systems Biology Core builds on substantive excellence in this area derived from the work in the Center for Complex Biological Systems (CCBS), established in 2001, one of only 13 P50 NIH-funded National Centers for Systems Biology. Through innovative research, the CCBS has established itself as a leading national center for systems biology.
Director Bogi Anderson & Associate Director Arthur Lander
The Administrative Core provides centralized administrative, clerical, logistical and organizational services and resources to meet the needs of the Center and associated research personnel. The Administrative Core personnel facilitate interactions with members of local and national biomedical research communities in areas within the mission of NIAMS.
