Animal Models Shared Resource

The UTHSC Center for Cancer Research Animal Models Shared Resources consists of  X Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Abaxis HM5 blood analyzer. We maintain a colony to provide investigators with immunocompromised mice. We assist with orthotopic and heterotopic tumor implantation, live animal bioluminescent tumor imaging, and tumor measurements. We have expertise in developing cancer stem-like cell cultures and establishing xenograft tumors from fresh tumor biopsies. This shared resource will advice on study design and interpretation for project management.
