Scientist-supported Laboratory Facilities

The College of Nursing Center for Nursing Research and Health Analytics houses three “wet” laboratories located on Newton Hall's lower level. These labs are staffed by full-time life science and clinical research specialists and two biomedical research assistants who are available for faculty and student consults regarding development of research aims and assay techniques. There are two Biosafety Level II (BSL2) laboratories certified by Ohio State Environmental Health and Safety and one BSL1 lab. The laboratories are equipped to perform a wide variety of molecule biology and protein biochemistry techniques with the goal of using biomedical techniques to understand complex diseases to improve patient care outcomes. Our labs are fully equipped to perform a wide variety of molecular biology, protein biology, tissue culture/simulation and microbiology techniques.

Expertise includes:

  • Psychoneuroimmunology
  • Molecular biology
  • Genomics
  • Microbiology
  • Pregnancy outcomes (pre-term birth, pre-eclampsia, etc.)
