Shared resource cores

VCU Massey Cancer Center's shared research resources represent an essential component of the infrastructure required to support the extensive research portfolio of Massey scientists. Nine shared resources and three developing cores serve Massey's research members:

  • Biological Macromolecule Shared Resource Core
  • Biostatistics Shared Resource Core
  • Cancer Research Informatics and Services Core 
  • Clinical Research Shared Resource Core
  • Developing shared resource cores
    • Cancer Mouse Models
    • Lipidomics
    • Genomics
    • Molecular Imaging
    • Flow Cytometry Shared Resource Core
  • Structural Biology Shared Resource Core
  • Tissue and Data Acquisition and Analysis Core
  • Transgenic/Knock-out Mouse Facility
  • VCU Microscopy Facility


All publications that include results, services or products generated by the VCU Massey Cancer Center Shared Resources must include the following acknowledgement in the manuscript:

"Services and products in support of the research project were generated by the VCU Massey Cancer Center [insert name of core] Shared Resource, supported, in part, with funding from NIH-NCI Cancer Center Support Grant P30 CA016059."

PubMed Central (PMC) ID numbers are required for those publications that use CCSG-supported shared resources. All of Massey Cancer Center's shared resources are supported by the CCSG. Information to assist you with this process can be found here
