Mouse Metabolic Evaluation Facility


The Mouse Metabolic Evaluation Facility (MEF) was created in 2006 as the result of a joint financial and structural effort of the Center for Integrative Genomics in the Faculty of Biology and Medicine (FBM) of the University of Lausanne, the University Hospital (CHUV) and the NCCR, Frontiers in Genetics.

The MEF is located at the CIG (Génopode) and is headed by Frederic Preitner, Ph.D. The mission of the MEF is to provide the Lausanne and Swiss Research Community with a wide repertoire of state-of-the-art, standardized investigative techniques to analyze the metabolic status of mice models of complex human disorders. Given the high level of complexity of most techniques, the MEF provides services to the researchers. The MEF also provides teaching for those who want to introduce specific techniques into their own laboratories.
