Core Research Facilities
Joy Little, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Fox Chase Cancer Center
Despite its relatively small size, Fox Chase has an outstanding array of core facilities that rival those of many larger research institutions. These facilities, which provide access to the latest technology, also provide essential services that would otherwise demand a considerable amount of benchwork on the part of the laboratory staff. Facilities include DNA micro-array, electron microscopy, cell imaging, histopathology, laser capture micro-dissection, molecular modeling, transgenic and knock-out mice, flow cytometry, antibody production, translational research (including siRNA and drug screening), tumor bank facility, tumor micro-array and many others.
Comprehensive Research Library
Fox Chase also has an exceptional research library located on campus. Staff librarians are always just a phone call, email or instant message away with answers to your questions, and provide full support through regular training sessions. Whether you need help crafting the perfect query in Medline or building a bibliography in EndNote, the Talbot Research Library staff is there to help. The library provides access to many online journals, databases, and other resources, and the inviting library space includes comfortable seating, wireless access, and a computer cluster for internet access and more.
