Research

The University of Utah Cutaneous Nerve Laboratory serves as a clinical diagnostic laboratory as well as a core resource for NIH, foundation-funded, and industry-sponsored research projects.

The University of Utah Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) Bioinformatics Core maintains a secure database that the lab uses to track each skin punch biopsy from collection to analyzed data.

We have extensive experience using multiple immunochemistry markers, including:

  • Peptidergic and non-peptidergic innervation
  • Nerve regeneration
  • Growth factor receptor expression
  • Inflammation

Pharmaceutical Trials

As the core laboratory for multi-cohort center trials, we have the ability and experience to train associated centers at pharmaceutical investigator's meetings.

We also ship biopsy kits, receive and process specimens for intraepidermal nerve fiber density, and provide timely quality control to centers.
