The Alaska Stable Isotope Facility is a state-of-the-art laboratory conducting stable isotope analyses of wide range of sample types for researchers from all over Alaska, the USA and the globe. Sample types include organic samples (C, N, O and H isotopes), inorganic samples (e.g. carbonate for C and O) and water (O and H).
Animal Quarters (AQ) provides safe and sanitary facilities for animal research projects in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act, Public Health Service Policy, National Institutes of Health Guidelines for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and the UAF Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. Housed animals include arctic ground squirrels, laboratory mice, red-backed voles, syrian hamsters, American widgeon, northern shovelers, lesser scaup, greater scaup, northern pintail, green-winged teal, zebrafish, sticklebacks, bettas, and black bears.
The Community Engagement and Clinical Support Core facilitates and supports community-based participatory research by drawing on local community knowledge and scientific expertise to implement and evaluate culturally valid and effective approaches to research in Alaska Native communities. The functions of the core include:
- Facilitating and sustaining community/CANHR partnerships by engaging the community in all phases of the research process.
- Supporting researchers in the development and implementation of linguistically and culturally appropriate research protocols.
- Providing technical capacity to collect clinical measures and biological samples.
- Processing all biological specimens collected in the field and maintaining a secure biological storage facility for CANHR investigators and Alaska Native participants.
The CECS Core supports CANHR's central theme of community-based participatory research through strong and sustaining community partnerships with Alaska Native people.
A staffed facility intended to keep UAF at the "cutting edge" of nucleic acid analysis in evolutionary biology, molecular biology, and wildlife and fisheries management. The Core Facility provides nucleic acid sample analysis, and maintenance and support for molecular instruments (some of which may be too expensive for individual labs to own) for both UAF and outside users.
The EBC staff provide support for CANHR research projects in all data-related activities, including data entry, the development and management of databases, and generation of data related to field visits, analyses, and research proposals. It provides expertise in statistical and epidemiologic issues and is responsible for training seminars on the preparation of grants and publications.
The Nutrition and Physical Activity Core supports multidisciplinary research requiring dietary and/or physical activity assessment, as well as provide nutritional sciences expertise. The NPA Core offers a range of services including high-quality dietary assessment, active collaboration in the design, implementation, and analysis of nutrition-related research. In addition to supporting the needs of CAHNR projects, the NPA Core will also actively promote and foster new research programs investigating the diet of Alaska Natives.
The primary research of the laboratory aims at understanding the role of Rho-subfamily small GTPases, in particular Rac1A, as pivotal regulators of actin filament dynamics and redox homeostasis in central nervous system (CNS) neurons. A second project addresses neuronal stem cells and their generation, functional integration, and elimination in the adult male wild songbird Junco hyemalis.
