32 Core Facilities found

Genetically Modified Animal (GMA) Phenotyping

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

High Performance Computing Group

The MSK HPC Group is home to powerful computing systems designed to facilitate the work of the Computational Biology Center and any MSK/SKI researchers.

Immune Monitoring

The Immune Monitoring Core helps researchers determine immune responses in patients receiving novel immune therapies with the hope that such therapies can move from the clinical trial phase into standard clinical practice.

Integrated Genomics Operation (IGO)

The Integrated Genomics Operation is a collaborative core facility focused on generating high-quality genomics data for basic, translational, and clinical research projects.

Investigational Products

The Investigational Products Facility’s mission is to ensure the quality and regulatory compliance of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s clinical trials investigational products and Investigational New Drug (IND) applications, and to promote efficiency in our drug development projects, through a combination of advisory, project management, and quality assurance (QA) oversight services.

Labware & General Services

The Glassware Washing Core processes cleaned and sterilized laboratory materials, such as glass, plastics, and instruments, through a central administrative office and satellite processing facilities.

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.

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 Cytogenetics

The Molecular Cytogenetics Core supports the cytogenetic analysis of cells from human and research animal sources using a wide range of chromosome analysis techniques.

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.
