TCDM activities are coordinated by 17 senior scientists. Thus, the strength of TCDM is the size of the Center with variety of expertise. TCDM holds know-how on mouse model generation, in vivo imaging in live mice and biomarker analyses, and expertise on phenotyping of the mouse models with a special reference on bone, cardiovascular, intestinal and thyroid diseases, obesity, oncology, reproduction, and on both pharmacological and dietary interventions on mouse models to challenge the phenotype.The phenotyping facilities are well supported by a well-structured tissue and cell imaging unit, with broad expertise on histology, immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy.

TCDM is well connected to the Graduate Schools at the Campus, and has a close collaboration with the Master of Health Science program, and also with the newly established International Master Program on Bioimaging.
