Nemours Biomedical Research
At Nemours, we offer clinical lab services and a pediatric diagnostic center to support the efforts of clinicians and researchers, both internal and external. We staff a wide array of labs, which contribute key scientific and diagnostic information for a wealth of medical areas.
The Nemours Biomedical Research Core Labs in Delaware provide highly specialized equipment, techniques, and staff expertise to Nemours researchers and clinicians, as well as external investigators. Five distinct labs contribute to important work being performed in fields such as genetic disease, cancer, skeletal dysplasia, and obesity-related cardiometabolic disease. The labs are equipped with up-to-date, sophisticated equipment, and run by highly trained, experienced research professionals who can generate and interpret the wealth of data available.
Our Core Lab offers researchers specialized network and computing resources, support, training, biostatistics, data analysis, and data management.
The Biomolecular Core Lab provides services in molecular biology and genetics to the clinical and research staff at Nemours and external collaborators.
The Cell Science Core assists researchers at Nemours and affiliated institutions in cell science, proteomics and separation of proteins and small molecules.
The Histochemistry and Tissue Processing Core is a full service histology laboratory located at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
We also have several certified diagnostic testing laboratories to help physicians make diagnoses and decide on treatment. These services are purely diagnostic in nature, and not designed for research use. They’re available only to qualified clinicians, internal and external, not to the general public. The labs cover a wide range of medical areas.
Nemours also offers a wealth of labs that perform research in numerous facets of nearly every medical area. These labs perform a large number of studies and investigations on an ongoing basis. They’re located at Nemours facilities in both Delaware and Florida.
