Genomics Research Center
The Genomics Research Center (GRC), located at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Institute, provides core laboratory support, technical consultation, assistance with experimental design and data analysis for investigators using high-throughput genomic sequencing, genotyping and gene expression in their research programs.
The Genomics Research Center is rapidly growing and has the following job opportunities available:
Lab Tech III (Job ID: 239007)
Lab Tech IV (Job ID: 244142)
For more information about the positions and how to apply, please contact us!
The GRC has a faculty-level Director, a Lab Manager, one Technical Scientist, one Senior Technician, two Technical Associates, two Technicians and two Bioinformaticians/data analysts. In addition, GRC staff lead collaborative projects with URMC investigators to develop new methodologies and incorporate emerging genomic technologies into faculty research programs and the GRC workflow. Dedicated computational support for hardware, data analysis and storage of high-throughput sequence data is provided by the Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) with 37 24-core compute nodes and 300TB of space dedicated solely for GRC analyses.

10X Genomics - Visium Spatial Gene Expression Technology.
At the Genomics Research Center, we have utilized the Fresh Frozen and FFPE Visium technology for many tissue types.
Pair histological spatial information with whole transcriptome data to better understand many research questions such as the spatial organization of cells and disease complexity. Visium Spatial Gene Expression technology is available with H&E for morphological context as well as with Immunofluorescence to co-detect proteins and gene expression from the same tissue section.
Contact us to learn more about the technology and scheduling a consultation for a spatial gene expression study.
