Lab Facilities The Gurtner laboratory occupies 14 benches in the 4,000 square foot Hagey Pediatric Surgical Research Lab located on the Stanford University Campus. The facility includes a state of the art animal surgery suite suite with isoflurane chambers, surgery stations and high magnification microscopes for a range of small animal surgeries. The laboratory also contains a Fluidigm Biomark HD system and Fluidigm C1 Single-Cell Auto Prep System that is able to prepare single-cell templates for mRNA and DNA sequencing, epigenetics or miRNA expression, which allows for investigation of tissue heterogeneity with single-cell accuracy. The laboratory has full capacity for standard cell culture, biomolecular and histological analyses. The Hagey Pediatric Research Lab is located in the center of Stanford University Medical Center allowing researchers easy access to the Hospital and Clinics, core research facilities and Lane medical library.
Animal Facility Yes (Mice, Rats, Dog, Pig)
Type of Research In vitro and in vivo work in stem cell biology, biomaterials, fibrosis, bioreactor-based microvascular flap technologies, targeted therapeutics
