Lay Summary

To understand and treat diverse cancers, researchers strive to identify the molecular events that enable cancer cells to grow uncontrollably and survive anticancer therapies. Cutting-edge research tools are essential to define crucial differences between normal and cancer cells and to develop future cancer treatments. Two tools fundamental to biomedical research are flow cytometry, a laser-based method to characterize and isolate subsets of normal and tumor cells from mixed populations, and advanced microscopy, an optical method to visualize individual cells and their subcellular components. Providing access to cutting-edge flow cytometry and state-of-the art microscopy will fuel the progres...
