Technical Cores

The COBRE Center has two scientific cores i.e. Cellular and Molecular Analytic Core (CMAC) and Irradiation and Animal Core (IAC). The goal of the scientific cores within the Center for Studies of Host Response to Cancer Therapy is to provide essential research support services to young COBRE investigators at UAMS to elucidate the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms of normal-tissue injury induced by ionizing radiation for the development of novel mechanism-based interventions to prevent or mitigate the side effects of radiotherapy.  We accomplish this both by enhancing the capabilities of existing core facilities within the College of Pharmacy and Medicine at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and by acquiring new instrumentation.
