Laboratory

The Translational Research and Integrative Biology Laboratory (TRῙB) is housed within the 18,500 square foot Children’s Clinical Research Center (CCRC). The lab houses two, fully operational, cell-culture facilities along with a separate freezer room with state-of-the-art card access ultra low-grade freezers. Multiple industrial size refrigerators are also accessible within the TRῙB lab.  TRῙB is a shared, comprehensive child health research infrastructure dedicated to state-of-the-art translational research aimed at optimizing therapeutics and care for all children.  TRῙB brings together a range of existing pediatrics laboratory programs as well as established core capabilities around the Indiana University School of Medicine and Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute to create a collaborative, quantitative and integrated biological approach to pediatric translational research.
