This site is intended to provide guidance to users of the LGCP Microscopy Core Facility.

The Laboratory of Genitourinary Cancer Pathogenesis Microscopy Core Facility provides state-of-the-art equipment, materials, and expertise to researchers in the LGCP. In addition, scientists in the NCI and other institutes routinely use the facility. A particular strength of the LGCP Microscopy Core Facility is the high level of “hands-on” involvement on the part of the Core personnel. The facility is a comprehensive unit that supports the researcher from experiment planning to preparation of figures for publication. Scientists using the core are trained in the techniques of specimen preparation, immunofluorescent staining and image acquisition using the appropriate equipment.

The Core is open to all NCI intramural researchers, although LGCP scientists have priority use of the equipment in the facility. Researchers from other institutes are also welcome to use the facility. Facility staff provides individual training for all new users. Core personnel assist with experimental design, data acquisition, and analysis. Unless special arrangements are made, the equipment in the facility may be used Monday to Friday, 6:00am – 6:00pm
