Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center
Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center (LCCC) was established in 1975 as a part of University of North Carolina School of Medicine. READ MORE
LCCC has 294 members from more than 40 departments across the UNC. Fueled by collaborations between basic and clinical sciences, UNC LCCC focuses on reducing cancer occurrence and death not only in North Carolina but also across the nation through research, treatment, training, and outreach.
Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC)
The Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) was formed in 2005 to support image-based biomedical research across the UNC System. READ MORE
The BRIC will be a statewide resource serving researchers across the state of North Carolina in a central facility that will handle the acquisition, processing, analysis, storage, and retrieval of images.
Building on internationally-recognized programs in medical imaging at both Chapel Hill and NC State, the goals of the BRIC are to provide an environment that promotes multi-disciplinary/multi-departmental research interactions that can more effectively address problems in biomedical imaging.
The Chapel Hill Analytical and Nanofabrication Laboratory
The Chapel Hill Analytical and Nanofabrication Laboratory (CHANL) was established in 2006 as part of the Institute for Advanced Materials, Nanoscience and Technology. READ MORE
provides cost-effective access to analytical and nanofabrication instrumentation as well as expertise and technical resources to not only UNC researchers from all departments but also researchers from other universities, government labs, and industry. User fees are charged for instrumentation usage to recover the cost of materials, supplies, and instrumentation maintenance.
The Institute for Advanced Materials, Nanoscience and Technology
The Institute for Advanced Materials, Nanoscience and Technology (IAM) was established in 2002 as a multidisciplinary research institute coordinating effort across polymer science, nanomaterials, and nanobiosciences. READ MORE
IAM focuses on materials science, nanotechnology and computational approaches to interdisciplinary sciences and applies these skills in many areas, but most frequently to the life and medical sciences interface. IAM partners with the UNC Institute for the Environment in understanding environmental issues such as global warming and environmental impacts on human health, and in developing the science, public policy, and social models needed to achieve the dramatic changes that lie ahead for our country and world.
Animal Studies Core
The Animal Studies Core makes available a central facility staffed by skilled technicians to promote reproducible experimentation in laboratory animals for UNC investigators. READ MORE
The Core provides expertise with small animal injection and surgical models as well as optical imaging and small colony management. The Facility provides animal tumor model expertise lacking in many laboratories i.e. orthotopic inoculations, choice of appropriate animal models, accurate measurement of tumor growth, treatment with chemotherapeutic reagents, hormones, viruses, etc. The Animal Studies Core also offers protocol assistance and helps foster interactions within the UNC cancer research community.
