Meeting the needs of the scientific community
The UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center Shared Resources provides the UC Davis research community with centralized access to specialized scientific expertise, consultation and assistance, infrastructure and equipment necessary to conduct cutting-edge scientific research.
Through special funding arrangements, Cancer Center members receive subsidies for and/or priority access to utilization of these resources. With respect to the Cancer Center, these resources are primarily intended to facilitate peer-reviewed, funded cancer research. By prior arrangement, junior faculty who are utilizing start-up packages or intramural support may be eligible for subsidized access. New shared resources with a demonstrated utility for cancer research are developed as is appropriate.
In cooperation with other units at UC Davis, the Cancer Center supports a variety of shared resources in:
Provides high quality, well-characterized cancer-related human tissue specimens and biological materials
Provides investigators with statistical data analysis support as well as statistical expertise for the design of new studies
Access to expertise and instrumentation for analytical flow cytometry, cell sorting, and laser scanning cytometry
Providing centralized, cost-effective, and comprehensive expertise and service in the broad area of genomics research
Provides access to a broad range of in vivo imaging technologies and provides expertise in planning, executing and analyzing in vivo imaging studies
Provides collection, processing and analysis of clinical specimens for pharmacokinetic and correlative studies and conducts preclinical modeling of novel anticancer agents or therapeutic combinations
