The Obesity Research Core is a one-stop shop being established to provide cutting-edge services for NPOD members and other users as well. The Obesity Research Core is currently being housed in a newly renovated facility on the lower level of Leverton Hall, (building on the left) the NPOD headquarters building.  The newly renovated core facility includes approximately 2,000 square feet of laboratory space, a state-of-the-art conference room, and a causal collaboration area right outside the laboratory for informal discussions.
