Cores

Where You Are:

Shared Resources, also called Cores, were developed at Moffitt Cancer Center to meet the needs of the Cancer Center’s scientific community. The functions of Shared Resources represent a vital component for the Cancer Center’s research enterprise and a significant component of the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG).

Shared Resources provide Moffitt investigators access to technologies, highly skilled services and scientific consultation at reasonable costs to facilitate scientific interaction and productivity. The Core facilities are conveniently located on Moffitt’s main campus, at the center of the Cancer Center’s basic science and translational research initiatives.

Analytic Microscopy

The Analytic Microscopy Core (AMC) provides a valuable resource for Moffitt researchers. Resources are provided for those interested in intracellular trafficking and sub-cellular localization of molecules involved in protein phosphorylation; signal transduction; cell cycle progression; cell-to-cell contact; cell motility; cell differentiation; apoptosis, angiogenesis; invasion or metastasis; DNA repair; gene expression; and drug discovery. The AMC’s primary goal is to provide Moffitt members with access to the latest optical microscopy imaging systems and expertise. READ MORE

Biostatistics

The Biostatistics Core Facility (BCF) provides statistical support to Moffitt Cancer Center members. This support includes determination of design and sample size for grant and clinical trial submissions and monitoring of research data on projects. The service fills researchers’ needs in developing information for submitting studies such as numbers and charts to help demonstrate their scientific conclusions. READ MORE

Cancer Informatics

The Cancer Informatics Core supports cancer researchers at Moffitt from pre-study design through the publication of research discoveries. READ MORE

Cell Therapies

The goal of the Cell Therapies Core (CTC) is to manufacture safe therapeutic cellular products in support of investigator-initiated clinical studies. The CTC helps maintain compliance with standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and several other agencies.  READ MORE

Chemical Biology

The Chemical Biology Core facility helps researchers identify and optimize chemical probes and new chemical compounds that can aid drug discovery and development. New drugs created from these will ultimately provide new therapies to cancer patients. READ MORE

Flow Cytometry

Moffitt’s Flow Cytometry Core Facility (FCCF) provides services for members with cancer-related research interests. The facility has six bench-top analyzers, two cell sorters, a bead array analyzer, an automated bead sorter, and a fluorescent microscope. READ MORE

Image Response Assessment Team

The Image Response Assessment Team (IRAT) Core facility uses state-of the art imaging equipment for patient studies and its extensive facilities for preclinical investigations. READ MORE

Molecular Genomics

The Molecular Genomics Core (MGC) is a single resource for research that requires analysis of the human genome or transcriptome, the set of all RNA molecules. READ MORE

Proteomics

The Proteomics Core Facility helps to design experiments, performs the necessary analyses, and provides interpreted results and publication-quality figures for users.  READ MORE

Small Animal Imaging Lab

The Small Animal Imaging Lab (SAIL) Core Facility provides examination of rodent models for both basic and translational cancer research. SAIL provides specialized evaluation of tumor development, progression, metastasis, and response to therapy in mouse models of cancer using modern multimodality imaging, including bioluminescent and biofluorescent imaging, intravital confocal microscopy, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, and beta particle imaging. READ MORE

Survey Methods

The Survey Methods Core (SMC) assists with selecting and/or designing survey data collection instruments and procedures.  READ MORE

Tissue

TC has established a state-of-science biorepository resource to facilitate access and use of biospecimens to support basic science and translational and clinical research. READ MORE

Translational Research

The Translational Research Core (TRC) is comprised of separate but related services devoted to supporting clinical research efforts. READ MORE
