These facilities contain a number of sophisticated analytical and quantitative tools that help investigators at Georgia State and outside companies pursue their research goals. Services include Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization mass spectrometry, proteomics, flow cytometry, cell sorting, Atomic Force Microscopy, microarray and DNS sequencing.
In midtown Atlanta, CABI is a shared core facility between Georgia State and Georgia Tech. CABI focuses on neuroimaging research, but also conducts studies using EEG, tDCS, TMS, and eye tracking. The core hosts a 3-Tesla Siemens Trio Magnetic Resonance Imaging System to allow the investigation of brain function and structure.
Collaborative University Research & Visualization Environment (CURVE)
A technology-rich space in the heart of Georgia State’s downtown Atlanta Campus, CURVE’s mission is to enhance research by providing technology and services that promote interdisciplinary engagement, collaborative investigation and innovative inquiry. Its features include a large-scale, touch-enabled video wall that is powerful enough to render complex models and visualizations.
ARCTIC provides advanced computing resources and support, particularly for investigators and projects that are not traditionally served by other high performance computing centers. ARCTIC facilitates research that would not be possible with consumer-grade computing, including analysis, modeling, simulation and the prediction of complex phenomena.
The flagship project of CHARA is its optical interferometric array of six telescopes on Mount Wilson, Calif. In terms of the number and size of its individual telescopes, its ability to operate at visible and near infrared wavelengths and its longest baselines of 330 meters, the CHARA Array is arguably the most powerful instrument of its kind in the world.
The TGT Core allows investigators at Georgia State and surrounding institutions to produce genetically engineered animal models for biomedical research. The core can provide support, advice and counseling in developing molecular reagents for genetic engineering, ES cell culture, breeding, genotyping and genetically engineered colony management.
The Atlanta Translational Imaging Facility houses a 7T small animal imaging and spectroscopy system that provides MRI and MRS resources to Georgia State researchers and their collaborators. A related imaging consortium promotes rapid translation of fundamental research to clinical applications by sharing resources and expertise, catalyzing the growth of a collaborative and coherent Atlanta translational research community.
