Animal Use & Care Information

Animal use at SKI is overseen by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.

Scientists at the Sloan Kettering Institute have access to a variety of state-of-the-art core facilities that provide services and technology to support research. The cores provide the highest quality of scientific technology in rapid turn-around time, while operating in a cost-effective manner. Each of the cores is staffed by research experts in the technologies offered. Education and training is provided in select cores.

Radiation Facilities

The Radiation Core provides two animal irradiators and two cell/tissue irradiators for use in research.

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.

Patient-Reported Outcomes, Community-Engagement, and Language Core

To support MSK investigators who wish to implement patient- or other self-reported outcomes into clinical research or routine care via traditional survey or interview techniques.


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

Cell Metabolism

As part of the Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Cancer Metabolism Center, the laboratory provides access to technologies and expertise allowing investigators at Memorial Sloan Kettering to measure small molecules in biological samples and characterize the metabolism of cancer cells.

Antitumor Assessment

The Antitumor Assessment Core provides resources, professional and technical expertise, and advisory services related to the evaluation of a wide range of agents with potential antitumor activity.

Mouse Genetics

The Mouse Genetics Core supports the use of genetically manipulated mice for in vivo studies of gene function in biological processes that are of interest to investigators.

Flow Cytometry

The Flow Cytometry Core provides investigators with state-of-the-art equipment and support for flow cytometric analysis and high-speed cell sorting.

Gene Editing & Screening

The Gene Editing & Screening Core (GES Core) supports all Memorial Sloan Kettering investigators with resources and tools related to RNA Interference (RNAi) and Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR)technologies.

Structural Biology

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