Lay Summary

Although a tumor can start from a gene mutation in a single cell, many different cell types help this tumor grow and metastasize, leading to life-threatening cancer.

The goal of this Core Facility is to assist cancer researchers who study a large range of cancer types, including those that affect breast, prostate, throat, lung and brain cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, and many more. It will allow them to measure many parameters at the same time on cancer cells, healthy cells, cells that interac...
