The Washington University Mouse Cardiovascular Phenotyping Core (MCPC) is a leading research core that was established in 1998 and yearly provides approximately 4,000 surgical, imaging and functional rodent cardiovascular physiology services annually to its academic and industry partners throughout the world.

With an experienced staff of three dedicated investigators, each with over 20 years of animal physiology experience. The MCPC provides a focused, systematic, and consistent approach to studying basal physiology of the mouse cardiovascular system. We are engaged in the latest state-of-the-art cardiovascular research and development of new experimental protocols, techniques and services.

The MCPC is part of the Center for Cardiovascular Research in the Cardiovascular Division at Washington University School of Medicine.
