Shared Resources & Services
The Analytical Cytometry Core Facility is providing researchers with high-quality flow cytometry instrumentation, as well as expertise in analyzing and/or sorting sample populations of interest via interpretation of their physical, fluorescent and/or light-scattering properties. The facilities and their services are available to both City of Hope and non-City of Hope researchers.
The Analytical Pharmacology Core facility focuses on conducting pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies for both chemotherapy clinical trials and peer-reviewed preclinical studies.
Biostatistics and Mathematical Oncology
The Biostatistics and Mathematical Oncology Core facility draws upon a talented group of statisticians who collaborate across basic, translational, clinical and population-oriented research at the City of Hope's Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Comprehensive Metabolic Phenotyping
The Comprehensive Matabolic Phenotyping Core is comprised of expert staff and state-of-the-art equipment to perform a cadre of metabolic tests for both internal and external investigators in both academia and industry.
Design and Fabrication Laboratory
The design and fabrication laboratory was established in 1970 as part of Biomedical Instrumentation Services Department and provides design and fabrication services.
Drug Discovery and Structural Biology
The DDSB Core technically and scientifically facilitates research into new, more effective and less toxic therapies for the treatment of cancer.
City of Hope’s Electron Microscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy Core is allowing researchers to take sharper, closer looks at the building blocks of biological life.
The GMP Manufacturing Core Facility at City of Hope offers both biological and chemical GMP manufacturing capabilities.
Integrative Genomics and Bioinformatics
The Integrative Genomics and Bioinformatics Core (IGBC) combines the expertise and instrumentation of two NCI-supported facilities—the Functional Genomics/Genomic Sequencing Core and the Bioinformatics Core—to provide an integrated array of services for genomics and informatics.
Light Microscopy/Digital Imaging
Our Light Microscopy Digital Imaging Core is providing services, facilities and expertise to City of Hope investigators needing high quality light microscope images.
Multi-omics Mass Spectrometry
The Multi-omics Mass Spectrometry facility provides cancer center members with mass spectrometry-based multi-omics technology to support research on cancer pathogenesis, novel anti-cancer agents and diagnostic studies.
Multi Scale Translational Research
The Multi-Scale Translational Research (MSTR) Core facilitates research that integrates analyses made at several different scales – populations, individuals, cells and microenvironment, omics, and analytes – to provide greater insight into cancer.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
The NMR Core facility focuses on applying high resolution NMR spectroscopy to the structural characterization of biomolecules, small organic compounds, natural products, and biomolecular complexes.
Pathology Research Services
Pathology studies at City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center (COHCCC) are supported by the Pathology Research Services Core (PRSC), which is composed of three distinct laboratories (Research Histology, Molecular Pathology, and Cytogenetics) and the COHCCC institutional biorepository
Small Animal Studies
The Small Animal Studies Core (SASC) combines the resources available through the previously reviewed Small Animal Imaging Core with a new Animal Tumor Models component.
Stem Cell Core Facility
The COH Stem Cell Core Facility aims to accelerate stem cell research at COH by providing critical stem cell resource and technical support. We will provide customized service for disease-specific human iPSC derivation, characterization, and genetic correction. These human iPSCs will become valuable tools for disease modeling, drug discovery, and pre-clinical therapeutic development.
Viral Vector and Gene Editing
The Viral Vector and Gene Editing Core will develop gene editing tools for manipulating mammalian genomes and deliver these tools into cells using viral vectors.
