Zurich Integrative Rodent Physiology (ZIRP) is an interdisciplinary core facility within the University of Zurich with the mission to support and strengthen research activities in the field of integrative physiology by providing infrastructure and know-how for the advanced analysis of rodent physiology. ZIRP is open for members of the University and the University Hospitals as well as ETH members – other research groups and companies interested in analyses of rodent physiology are also welcome.

Besides an imaging and a laboratory platform ZIRP offers various resources, ranging from special equipment to veterinary and technical support as well as several services.

Additionally, ZIRP aims to strengthen inter-disciplinary co-operations and to optimize the use of available infrastructure by providing a platform where researchers can link each other to share resources and establish co-operations.
