Rutgers Cancer Institute's Shared Resources (SRs) offer scientific expertise, shared instrumentation, and software-enabled services that span the continuum between basic and clinical research. Informed by our Director's vision, the expertise of our leaders, and member responses to service development surveys, Rutgers Cancer Institute has invested extensively in the immunotherapy-related personnel and instrumentation (IMFC SR), the development of services that use novel models to understand and treat cancer (see GESR and developing ODSR), and the expansion of translational services related to the management of cancer prevention and outcomes data research (CPODS SR). We provide the following resources to foster and support basic, clinical, and translational cancer research:
- Biomedical Informatics
- Biospecimen Repository and Histopathology Service
- Cancer Prevention and Outcomes Data Support
- Comprehensive Genomics
- Genome Editing
- Immune Monitoring and Flow Cytometry
- Organoid Development
Cancer Center members may be eligible for priority access and rate subsidies for shared resources supported by the Cancer Center Support Grant (P30CA072720) from the National Cancer Institute.
Referencing Support Grant and Shared Resources
Use of Rutgers Cancer Institute Shared Resources requires co-authorship for all Rutgers Cancer Institute personnel who contributed to the scientific development of the published project, particularly as it relates to project design, assay and method development, and statistical and bioinformatics support.
Rutgers Cancer Institute SRs are led by faculty with outstanding expertise and scientific know-how. SR Management encourages the support of cancer-focused proposals, given that appropriate grant support is provided at the time of the award.
