Collaboration Through State-of-the-Art Facilities and Services
The GW Cancer Center provides expert support services and state-of-the-art equipment to all members through a number of core facilites, including the Biospecimen Repository, the Cancer Informatics Core Pilot, the Flow Cytometry Core Facility, the Proteomics Core at Children's National Research Institute, and the Stem Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy Laboratories.
The GW Biospecimen Repository provides a biobanking facility for the collection, processing, storage and disbursement of high quality cancer biospecimens.
Cancer Informatics Core Pilot (CIC-p)
The Cancer Informatics Core Pilot (CIC-p) project provides collaborative informatics support for cancer research through guidance for software use and by acting as liaison for various NGS data services.
The Flow Cytometry Core Facility assists researchers by providing access to well-characterized, state-of-the-art cytometry equipment for sophisticated cell analysis, as well as services in instrument set up and training, experimental design, methods troubleshooting, data analysis and interpretation of results.
Proteomics Core at Children's National Research Institute
The Proteomics Core laboratory at Children's National Research Institute (CNRI) is located in the Center for Cancer Immunology and Research. It provides an excellent technological platform to support and advance the basic and clinical resarch at CNRI and the George Washington University.
Stem Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy Laboratories
Once completed, the Stem Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy laboratories will provide a centralized facility and resources for the preparation of therapeutic cellular products.
