Cores & Shared Resources

Providing University of Florida cancer scientists with state of the art technology coupled with scientific expertise to foster and facilitate outstanding cancer research, is one mission of the UF Health Cancer Center.

UFHCC strives to provide resources that are valuable to the cancer research community, and continually seeks opportunities to enhance our shared resource offerings. A broad array of services are supported through relationships with the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research(ICBR), Department of Biostatistics, and Mouse Pathology Laboratory. The UFHCC directly manages an shRNA library, and the Structure based Drug Design Lab.

UFHCC shared resources are available to all UFHCC research program members. By providing a UF chartfield to ICBR iLabs billing system or Mouse Pathology, members can be reimbursed by the Cancer Center for a portion of ICBR charges for funded research projects. We directly support faculty in Biostatistics, so please contact Fei Zou, Ph.D. in Biostatistics to access UFHCC supported biostatistics services.

If you are interested in utilizing UFHCC supported shared resources, are not currently a member of a program, and are engaged in cancer relevant research at the University of Florida, please contact Natalie Roman to apply for membership.

Member feedback about shared resources is always welcome. Please discuss any ideas for additional cores or the services of existing cores with your program leader. Program leaders meet regularly with Cancer Center leadership to share insight about shared resources as well as overall Cancer Center support.

We welcome you to use the links below to learn more about our shared resources and how to access them.
