33 Core Facilities found

Structural Biology

The X-ray Crystallography Core serves structural biologists as well as other researchers who use x-ray crystallography in their research.


The Biostatistics Core serves investigators through collaborative research, general consulting, grant preparation support, education, data management, and computing.

Microchemistry & Proteomics

The Microchemistry & Proteomics Core provides access to state-of-the-art, mass spectrometry based protein analysis technology. Core services include experimental design consultation, gel band protein ID, post translational modification analysis, SILAC, data analysis, and peptide synthesis.

Molecular Microbiology

The Molecular Microbiology Facility (MMF) is part of the Center for Microbes, Inflammation, and Cancer. The laboratory works with investigators to use next generation sequencing platforms to analyze the microbial composition of experimental samples obtained from mice or clinical samples obtained from patients.

Media Preparation

The Media Preparation Core prepares high-quality, chemically-defined tissue culture and bacteriological media necessary for ongoing cell growth research at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Radiochemistry & Molecular Imaging Probes

The Radiochemistry & Molecular Imaging Probes Core provides researchers with radionuclides and helps incorporate them into radiolabeled pharmaceuticals and radiolabeled antibodies for both basic research investigations and patient formulations.

Center of Comparative Medicine & Pathology

The Center of Comparative Medicine and Pathology is an academically oriented, interdisciplinary center that supports the development, characterization, care, and use of animal models at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

Molecular Cytology

The Molecular Cytology Core helps researchers identify and master technologies for detecting and analyzing molecules in their natural environment -- for example, in cells, tissues, organs, embryos, and tumors.

Genetically Modified Animal (GMA) Phenotyping

The Tri-Institutional Genetically Modified Animal Phenotyping Service provides an extensive baseline phenotypic profile of genetically modified animals.

Research Pharmacy

The Research Pharmacy develops, procures, and validates the preparation and packaging of investigational drugs for clinical use.
