Facilities and services Pharmacology and Toxicology


  • Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry - LC MS/MS
  • High performance liquid chromatography – HPLC

Animal models

  • Murine model of bilateral renal ischemia-reperfusion injury 
  • Murine model of ischemic hindlimb exercise

Ex vivo models

  • isolated perfused rat kidney
  • mouse in situ kidney perfusion
  • small vessel myograph
  • placenta perfusion 

Data analysis and modelling

  • curve fitting and pharmacokinetic analysis
  • physiologically-based pharmacokinetic/toxicokinetic modelling
  • pharmacokinetic-dynamic modelling
Baculovirus-mediated overexpression of transporter proteins in a vesicle system or whole cells
Human forearm model of ischemia-reperfusion injury to study the effect of drugs on the vascular system. This can be combined with the use of  radioactively-labeled annexin A5 and scintigraphy.
