Cell and Viral Vector Laboratory Shared Resource

Areas of Focus

The Cell and Viral Vector Laboratory (CVVL) Shared Resource serves two essential and highly utilized functions within the Cancer Center:

  • Laboratory Support for Experimental Approaches
    Specialized cell culture and experimental services are available through the experienced and highly skilled CVVL staff, and allow investigators to carry out short-term experiments quickly and in a cost-efficient manner. These experiments include establishment of cell lines from primary murine and human tissue explants, production of virus stocks for gene transfer, and large-scale expansion of tumor cell lines for downstream applications.
  • Distribution Center for Cell Culture Products
    The CVVL distribution center provides cell culture products. Both basic and specialty media are available to investigators at a substantial cost-savings compared to the list price or the general university subsidy. Molecular biology reagents are available from five different vendors, and reflect the breadth of products sold by these vendors. Cancer Center members receive substantial subsidies on these products, and all users benefit from free shipping.
