The Support Cores and Shared Resources provide LCRC members with access to technologies, services, and scientific consultation that enhance scientific interaction and productivity. By each consortium partner also supporting shared services for entire center, the collaborative arrangement provides stability, reliability, cost-effectiveness, access to specialized technology and methodology, and quality control. The organization and successful implementation of core initiatives are a critical piece of demonstrating competitiveness for seeking an NCI-designation and a Cancer Center Support Grant. Shared resources should provide support to the Cancer Center’s programs in a manner that is both cost-effective and supportive of the science.
Each Core must be able to effectively describe the following structure:
The LCRC utilizes a system of core research facilities that provide state-of-the-art technologies necessary to assist researchers in their work. Core equipment and services facilitate research across programs and afford resources that no single research laboratory could provide. The following core facilities are available to LCRC members.
