Animal Research Facilities (ARF)

Is specially designed to accommodate controlled environment for the care and maintenance of experimental animals.  We facilitate research for students and researchers, both internal and external of IMERI FKUI. We also develop animal models for research, for example stroke model, diabetic, endometriosis, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and many more. The ARF is equipped with treadmill for rodents, non-invasive blood pressure measurement, in-vivo imaging system, and individually ventilated cage for mice and rats.

Ongoing Activities

  • Provides facilities for researcher from internal FKUI (bachelor degree program, master degree program, doctoral program) and external FKUI.
  • Preparing animal subjects for studies in IMERI in accordance with the researcher’s needs.
  • Assisting researchers in the research process.
  • Assisting data analysis and publication.
  • Development (animal models, transgenic/knock out animal model, Stroke Model, cancer animal models, etc).
  • Breeding animal models (animal resources).
  • Seeking grants through research, focusing on topics related to health problems in Indonesia.
    Conducting research collaborations with other national instances and instances abroad with topics including MS, endometriosis, Parkinson, etc.
