The Purdue Translational Pharmacology (PTP) Core conducts in vivo studies that avoid the stress-induced complications of biofluid collection and provide a translational model more closely aligned with drug metabolism in humans. The facility serves individual investigators, government entities and private companies. The PTP synergizes with the Metabolite Profiling Facility in the Bindley Bioscience Center, which facilitates the pharmacological analysis of samples collected during the studies.
