Nucleus: Network of Core Labs Enabling Solutions is a core organizing centre for multi-faceted research facilities in Windsor-Essex. It brings together health research infrastructure to:
WE-SPARK is in the process of building an inventory of existing facilities, as well as our gaps and needs. Please check back often.
We have several research pipelines that are made up of multiple core facilities and require highly trained technicians and cutting-edge equipment. These pipelines are critical in addressing regional health issues, advancing innovation and technology and driving outcomes that support a healthier community.
Drug Development and Screening
Innovative technologies are used to test the responses of patient samples to drugs with the goal of developing more effective drugs for different diseases including cancer.
Cutting-edge technologies are used to test the genomic/proteomic and epigenomic signature of patient samples with the goal of matching patients to the best treatments.
Researchers are working together to study different regenerative systems and to engineer solutions for patients including novel medical devices.
Recovery and Rehabilitation
Researchers across the partnership are working together to test new solutions for post-injury recovery and rehabilitation solutions
Researchers are monitoring our external environment (land, water, soil) and testing for compounds with toxic effects to humans
