    DNA Resource Core

    The DNA Resource Core provides access to specialized resources such as rapid and user friendly high-throughput DNA sequencing, a cDNA/RNAi clone repository, and distribution services and informatics support

    Tumor Imaging Metrics Core

    Under the direction of Annick Van den Abbeele, MD (DFCI) and Gordon Harris, PhD (MGH), the Tumor Imaging Metrics Core (TIMC) provides objective assessment of imaging response to treatments being evaluated through approved cancer clinical trials across the five DF/HCC hospitals (BIDMC, BWH, CHB, DFCI, MGH) using independent tumor measurements of radiological scans (CT, MR and PET).  With convenient locations at BWH, DFCI and MGH, the TIMC produces high-quality data with fast turnaround time
