Lab 3055 contains basic research equipment for the study of cancer immunology. This equipment is also necessary for training undergraduate students and residents in the Dept of Otolaryngology. In addition, this equipment enables us to test new biological response modifiers from several pharmaceutical companies in Japan and the U.S. for the last 25 years.
Housed on the CDU Campus, the Charles Drew Medical Geographic Information Systems (CDMGIS) Laboratory provides a "virtual center" for the storage, management, analysis, modeling, and mapping of spatially referenced health related data using state of the art Geographic Information Systems Technology (Medical GIS). The CDMGIS laboratory was established with partial funding from the National Center for Research Resources and the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCRR# 5G12RR003026-RCMI & NCMHD# 5P20MD000148-EXPORT) to support the integration of Geographic Information Science (GISC) theories and methods within biomedical research. The establishment of a medical GIS laboratory at Charles Drew University builds upon ongoing research activities of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) supported Research Centers in Minority Institutions Biomedical Research Center (RCMI) and constitutes an integral component of a rapidly expanding university research informatics infrastructure.
A primary goal of the center is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration by linking the computing facilities, spatial databases and the resident expertise at the CDMGIS laboratory with other research and teaching activities occurring at Charles Drew University, UCLA and other RCMI institutions. Additionally, collaborations are actively sought with community-based organizations, local health and services organizations, government agencies, and academic campuses and institutes across the nation.
Our laboratory studies the endocrine effects of drugs of abuse, especially nicotine and opioids. We also study the pre-receptor metabolism of cortisol and how it relates to diabetes and obesity.
In this laboratory there are basic science and translational science projects that are related to muscle atrophy and obesity.
The laboratory is adequate for molecular biology and tissue culture studies. It has a separate tissue culture room (laminar hood, inverted microscope and 2 CO2 himidified atmosphere incubators). Another contiguous room is specifically designed for microscopy, tissue processing and immunohistochemistry.
The purpose of this lab is to investigate the effect of nerve damage in the lower urinary tract organs that can occur by surgeries or neuropathies associated with aging and diabetes that affect the undeserved population in south LA. The main focus is in neurobiology of the sexual function with emphasis on molecular mechanism involved in neuroprotection and neuroregeneration.
