Animal housing is performed by the Center for Comparative Resources Department at Massachusetts General Hospital located in main campus in Edwards and Wellman Research Buildings. They (CCR) order, receive and house all animals. This is performed in compliance with USDA law and AALAS regulations. We have access to a small animal and large survival surgical suite. We also have access to a portable CT scanner, fluoroscopy and a large animal survival surgical suite. Surgical suites are equipped with anesthesia equipment for animal surgery, operating space, surgical operating scope, desktop autoclave, and an on-line blood gas analyzer.
