Effective March 19, 2020

We will continue to offer ALL of our services, but with significant changes to our User requests process, Staff Scheduling, and User self-guided operations practices.  All current research projects will continue depending on resources available and any new research projects will be initiated upon receiving and approval of a statement disclosing the critical nature of the research.

Revisions to Operating Protocol: Our modified protocol minimizes face to face interaction; we will communicate primarily by email, phone and other remote solutions with our Users.   

  • Essential personnel of our SR include 1 technical operator; to implement necessary social distancing recommendations, our operators will provide assistance by appointment only. 
  • All technical issues with instruments and servers will be resolved in a timely fashion and according to time and resource availability.
  • Self-guided user operations will continue with following changes:
    • social distancing of six feet per person and to the greatest extent possible should be implemented at all times,
    • each user is responsible for work stations cleaning and decontamination after operations complete, including bench space between instruments.

Small Molecule Drug Development

The Small Molecule Drug Development Shared Resource (SR) optimizes robust assays in 384-well format and to screen large chemical libraries to identify new small molecules for innovative cancer therapeutics.
