Shared resources, primarily coordinated and / or administered by the UCT Mainz include the Clinical Cancer Registry, the central Clinical Trials Unit and the liquid and tissue Tumor Bank.
UCT investigators have access to all shared intramural resources required to perform high-quality research. These include, among others, a Flow Cytometry Core Facility, a Mass Spectrometry Core Facility, a NGS Core Facility, a Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM) Core Facility, a Translational Animal Research Center (TARC), a Bioinformatics Core Facility (BIUM-Mz), a Systematic Cell Analysis Core Facility (CSA) etc.. A GMP-laboratory for the manufacturing of cell products, including depletion and / or selection of hemopoietic and lymphoid cell populations and, potentially, the generation of genetically modified (CARs, TCRs) T cells is available. The laboratory is licensed by local and state authorities and accredited by JACIE. Although these laboratory Core Facilities are operated by individual institutions, timely access for UCT investigators is guaranteed.
Extramural Core Facilities are further available at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB; Genomic, Proteomics, Bioinformatics Core Facilities) and the Institute of Molecular Genetics (Genomic Core Facility).
