Preclinical Cardiology Platform

The Baker Institute’s Preclinical Cardiology Microsurgery and Imaging Platform (PCMIP) has established expertise, facilities and highly reproducible techniques specialising in mouse models of cardiovascular conditions including myocardial infarction (ischemia with re-perfusion), hypertension and heart failure.

The PCMIP provides advice, design support and flexible technical services to scientists including microsurgery, echocardiography (non-invasive), hemodynamic assessment to model clinical conditions and phenotype these models using clinically-equivalent approaches. 

The PCMIP allows scientists across the Alfred Research Alliance to comprehensively assess heart function in both novel genetic models and diseased conditions in response to pharmaceutical intervention.

The PCMIP also offers experienced contract research and preclinical trial support on a case-by-case basis.
