The newly created Columbia COVID-19 Biobank has been up and running for just three weeks, providing to researchers a comprehensive bio-repository of blood and tissue samples of COVID-19 patients that are linked to genome sequencing and extracted clinical and electronic health data. The idea is to lend immediate support and invaluable resources to investigators working toward a cure for COVID-19.
The Flow Cytometry Shared Resource at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center supports a wide variety of studies related to cancer biology, functional genomics and tumor immunology using the newest techniques.
Directed by Charles Karan, PhD, the High Throughput Screening shared resource is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, robotic automation, and software for running high-throughput screens using a variety of assay technologies.
