Laboratory Support Service

The Laboratory Support Service offers consultation to assist the researcher with research study design, sample collections, sample analysis, issues of obtaining the best possible data set for supporting data sections (for extramural grant applications), questions for technology transfer issues (patent applications), and questions regarding all CTSI pilot grant applications. Additionally, assistance is provided for identifying research equipment needs for the research project, promoting collaborations with other researchers, and locating equipment and resources currently available at the University.

Finally, information is provided regarding all University Core resources, and other laboratory services provided by other departments. The goal of this consultation service by the Support Center is to provide the researcher with the tools necessary and the best opportunity to obtain clinical data that will ultimately translate into new therapeutic strategies and innovative technologies that will improve clinical care.
