BSL 3 Laboratory

Type: Core Laboratory

Summary:

"The purpose of this laboratory is to develop diagnostic tests, vaccines, and biomarkers of infectious agents prevalent in the El Paso/ Ciudad Juarez and McAllen, Texas border commmunities. Research emphasis on West Nile Virus and Mycobacterium tuberculosis are currently underway.



Bioinformatics Computing Laboratory

Type: Core Laboratory

Summary:

The Bioinformatics Computing Laboratory (BCL) serves as a core facility for the Border Biomedical Research Center (BBRC). Our panel of consulting faculty from the departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mathematical Sciences provide bioinformatics computing support on a broad spectrum of research projects. We specialize in developing databases and software for: genomics and proteomics data analysis; biomolecular sequence analysis and structure prediction; and glycosylation site prediction. We aid researchers in the use of these advanced bioinformatics software tools by building user-friendly, customized, web-based interfaces for them. Processing power to support the robust computational and analytical operations of the BCL are provided by a powerful network of local and regional high-performance computing facilities.



Biomolecule Analysis Core Facility

Type: Core Laboratory

Summary:

The Biomolecule Analysis Core Facility (BACF) specializes in the separation and characterization of biomolecules. The facility possesses state-of-the-art equipment for proteomic analysis and the characterization of molecular binding interactions. These resources promote new insight into the mechanism of infectious agents, cancer, and other diseases that affect the population of the Paseo del Norte region. BACF services are available to external collaborators for a small fee.



Border Biomedical Research Center

Type: Center

Summary:

The mission of the Border Biomedical Research Center (BBRC) is to facilitate and expand the pathobiology research at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) by strengthening the research infrastructure of the institution. The BBRC, through collaborative efforts with nearby institutions, has become the focal point of pathobiology research that addresses the biomedical and health issues of the bicultural population of the El Paso/Ciudad Juarez region of the Texas-Mexico border.The BBRC will continue to have a positive impact on the number of Hispanics participating in science, and serve as a major point of entry for Hispanics and other underrepresented scientists for participation in the biomedical advances of the nation in the 21st century and beyond.

The Center has assigned priority to research in the areas of infectious diseases, toxicology, and neuroscience and metabolic disorders. The BBRC also supports multi-user research facilities in biochemistry/molecular cell biology, preparatory cell culture, analytical cytology, and statistical consulting.

The BBRC is supported by the Research Centers in Minority Institutions Program (RCMI), administered by the National Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health. Congressionally mandated in 1985, the RCMI program strives to lessen the disparity in health status between minority and majority populations by enhancing the capacity of eligible institutions to conduct biomedical and behavioral research. UTEP established the Border Biomedical Research Center in 1992 to carry out this important mission. The program involves faculty from the departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Psychology.



Cytometry, Screening and Imaging Core Facility

Type: Core Laboratory

Summary:

The Cytometry, Screening and Imaging Core Facility (CSI) Core Facility is a comprehensive research cell-culturing and cytometry facility established in 2007, as part of the Border Biomedical Research Center (BBRC). This facility was conceived to provide investigators, students and other researchers access to state-of-the-art technology for conducting experiments related to cellular, immune and physiological responses to stress, infectious agents, and toxicants. The laboratory also provides assistance and training related to cell culture techniques and equipment operation . The 1,756 sq ft core facility includes 6 individual cell culture suites that are available 24/7 to any researchers that have completed in-house training. The core also provides customized project support for experimental design and data analysis. The integration of the CSI has allowed investigators to screen a large number of compounds for their therapeutic potential against pathogens, cancer, and other diseases.



DNA Analysis Core Facility

Type: Core Laboratory

Summary:

The DNA Analysis Core Facility supports researchers in their nucleic acid-based research studies on a 24/7 basis. The facility provides access to a wide range of genomic research tools including: DNA sequencing; microsatellite and fragment length polymorphism analysis; quantitative and real-time PCR; microarray analysis; and sophisticated nucleic acid analysis software. The DNA Analysis Core Facility services are available to external researchers from the RCMI program and other institutions for a nominal fee.



Statistical Consulting Laboratory

Type: Core Laboratory

Summary:

The long-term goal of the Statistical Consulting Laboratory (SCL) is to be a regional resource for the statistical support of basic science research, clinical or population based research, and evaluation of interventions designed to address issues of health and health disparities in the region's population. As a major component of the Border Biomedical Research Center (BBRC), the Statistical Consulting Lab will continue to serve as a focal point from which all BBRC participants may obtain statistical and computing support for both their research and for the education of students in the graduate programs of the Biological Sciences Department. Statistical support is provided by a Ph.D. level staff statistician and five resource statisticians (counting the SCL core director) in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
