The Inhalation Exposure Core has the capability for exposure of a wide variety of biological entities from cells to populations of organisms to a great range of compounds that can be delivered by inhalation. Expertise is available for exposures to oxidant gases, reactive gases, aerosols, mixed gas and aerosols, allergens, microbes, and various drug-containing entities. In addition, a pulmonary function unit has been established under the direction of a Core Scientist to assess respiratory physiology in animals undergoing exposure.

The Core serves as an equipment and service core for investigators locally and nationally. It provides unique services and research opportunities for investigators by providing the extensive expertise of the faculty and staff at the cellular/tissue level and services for whole animal studies using in vivo imaging. The Core not only provides access to personnel with considerable expertise but also eliminates the need for investigators to purchase costly imaging and other related equipment.
