The purpose of the Xenograft Core is to bring together investigators studying brain cancer (glioblastoma) biology and novel therapeutics to combat these cancers. The chief purpose of the Core will be to facilitate the analysis of brain tumors in animal models by providing the facilities and technical expertise to conduct these experiments. The Core will allow common experimental approaches to be centralized and a trained technician to perform the common experiments.
