Core C: Analytical Core  

The Analytical Chemistry Core serves as a centralized resource for the Center for Children's Environmental Health (CCEH) at the University of California-Davis. It is one of five Facility Cores that support three interrelated hypothesis-based research projects to understand the complex web of etiologic factors that contribute to autism. The overall objective of the Analytical Chemistry Core is to provide analytical support for the human monitoring, animal model, and cell biology projects in the program project grant. Specifically, the Core will establish the metabolic pathways responsible for variations in lipid composition between autistic children and their siblings and between normal and immunologically challenged animal models of autism, use global metabolomic procedures to search for biomarkers of autism, provide analytical data on pesticide and other xenobiotic levels in cell and in vivo model systems and in serum samples, and develop new analytical methods for xenobiotics related to the supported research projects.
