About the Tissue Culture Core Facility
The Tissue Culture Core
Facility (TCCF) was established in 1997. TCCF has developed an
infrastructure of core services essential for investigators affiliated with
clinical and basic science departments and centers at UTMB.
investigators served by
the TCCF have research programs that include patho- and immune-biology of
BSL-2, -3 and -4 level infectious agents (viruses, bacteria, parasites), as
well as a wide range of diseases linked to chronic inflammatory processes, drug
abuse, behavioral disorders, and aging and age-associated diseases.
The Tissue Culture Core Facility provides a variety of services and technical support to enhance the ability of UTMB investigators to conduct high-quality collaborative research that is dependent on a variety of cell culture systems and cell biology methods to address biomedical questions at the cellular and molecular levels with an emphasis on human systems. This mission is accomplished by providing appropriate technical and intellectual assistance to UTMB investigators in a functional, cost-efficient, and multi-user environment that will enhance productivity in both their individual and collaborative research programs. Another important aspect of the core’s mission is training investigators (students, new investigators).
