Our Goal

To provide state-of-the-art imaging technologies to Cancer Center Members

Established in 1999, the Cell Imaging Core Facility’s goal is to provide state-of-the-art cell imaging technologies to SKCCC investigators. Direct support from the NIH and the SKCCC keeps the cost of these services low. Recent growth has allowed us to expand our range of services.
