UPMC Hillman Cancer Center



Shared Resource Directors

The Shared Resources at UPCI include state-of-the-art facilities that provide infrastructure, technology, support, and expertise to enhance basic, translational, and clinical cancer research with a goal to provide outstanding service at reasonable cost. In addition to standard service offerings, most facilities will work with researchers to provide customized procedures as needed. Shared Resource Directors provide expert consultation and, in some cases, may participate as co-investigators on research faculty grants.
