Shared Resources

SR Newsletters

The Shared Resources at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute are an NCI-recognized network of specialized service facilities, or core facilities, which facilitate an investigator's ability to conduct cancer research by reaching across medical disciplines. We offer: expert leadership and training; clinical, administrative and technical support; and state-of-the-art instrumentation to cancer researchers.

With a focus on three primary research areas – laboratory, clinical and population-based –OSUCCC–James' Shared Resources are dedicated to maintaining open accessibility to all of our members. By providing a cost-effective means for users to advance their investigations, the Shared Resources deliver measurable scientific value to the broader cancer research community while offering an important venue for scientists to explore hypotheses, determine outcomes and communicate findings via numerous platforms and publications.

The Shared Resources are funded in part by the OSUCCC–James Cancer Center Support Grant from the National Cancer Institute, by strategic partnerships with various University colleges and departments, and by established chargeback systems.

Through a collaborative affiliation, OSUCCC–James and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have made available to researchers several unique and valuable core services in the areas of research-grade and GMP-grade vector production, translational trials development and support assays, and GTP-compliant clean-room cell manipulations.

The Shared Resources are available to investigators (both within and outside of the University) who adhere to usage guidelines.
