Transgenic Core

Transgenic core operations for University of Alberta are administered through the Center for Prions and Protein Folding Diseases (CPPFD). University of Alberta researchers may use this supported facility for sourcing or creating prion-sensitized rodents. Enquiries should first be directed to Dr. David Westaway, and requests are then vetted by the PrioNet Research Management Committee (RMC) prior to the initiation of any experimental procedures.

For further information please contact Dr. David Westaway:, tel 780-492-9377
