The Cleveland Digestive Diseases Research Core Center (DDRCC) is composed of three scientific core laboratories and an administrative core with a clinical component, all of which provide support for the research efforts of our center members. Together with the Pilot/Feasibility and Enrichment Programs, the cores promote the development of interactive research relevant to digestive diseases.

Each core provides certain standard "service" functions for investigators, such as clinical specimen storage in the BioRepository Core, tissue preparation and sectioning in the Histology/Imaging Core, education and training on various mouse modeling techniques in the Mouse Models Core, and clinical study design consultation in the Clinical Component of the Administrative Core. These core services provide high-quality, low-cost services to enhance the quality of research efforts by our individual DDRCC members.
