Shared Resources

The Purdue Institute for Cancer Research is the nucleus of the university's on-campus and partner cancer research community. The institute fosters close interactions among cancer scientists in understanding aspects of chemical and structural biology, cell signaling, gene regulation, and effective targeting and delivery mechanisms for new anti-cancer agents. The shared resource’s role is to assist investigators from the institute's Research Programs who are seeking novel approaches to addressing key cancer problems.

Our institute-sponsored facilities provide access to specialized technologies, services and expertise that enhance scientific interaction and productivity that support cancer-relevant research. Look below and see what we have to offer.

We also have Purdue-affiliated resources that provide important support to investigators via facilities and otherwise, such as internally-funded shared resources grants.

In addition to institute facilities and Purdue-affiliated facilities, we also have a collaborative, partnership agreement to offer center-supported shared resources at internal rates. The IU Simon Cancer Center has a number of facilities that support cancer research.

Check out what the IU Simon Cancer Center has to offer institute members.

XRAD320 irradiator

The X-RAD320 is a shared equipment in the Purdue Institute for Cancer Research that can be used for X-ray irradiation of cells and mice.

Located on the 4th floor of the Hansen Life Sciences building, it is a campus-wide resource and offered free of charge.
