Cell Science Core

Our Lab:

The Cell Science Core (CSC) specializes in protein and small molecules analysis, cell analysis, and cell culture techniques. Services include:  2-D gel electrophoresis, 2-D DIGE, LC-MS/MS, HPLC, flow cytometry, cell and tissue culture, and immortalization of cell lines. Our staff works closely with investigators to help design, perform, and analyze experiments. Additionally, the CSC staff also offer training and assistance in flow cytometry, tissue culture, and operation many of our walk-up instruments.

The CSC is a component of the Center for Pediatric Research at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children located in Wilmington, Delaware. We are supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant number P30GM114736. Any publication of data generated using the CSC services or instruments should cite the grant number (see citation).

The Cell Science Core is supported by the NIH COBRE program, and the NIH requires all investigators (faculty, staff, or students) who publish/present  data funded wholly or in part by COBRE funds – including use of cores – to acknowledge the grant through citation. Contact us if you have any questions.

  • All publications, articles, abstracts, and presentation using data from the instrument must include one of the following statements:
    • This project was supported by the COBRE program, with a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences - NIGMS (P30 GM114736) from the National Institutes of Health.
    • Short citation for abstracts: Supported by a grant from NIH-NIGMS (P30 GM114736).
