History

Over the past three decades, the Tissue Culture Facility (TCF) has consistently strengthened and expanded its scope of services to become the most frequently used and comprehensive shared resource core in the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Because the TCF has maintained high standards, expanded its services and products, and been responsive to the needs of UNC Lineberger, it enjoys a positive reputation among its users that has resulted in very high usage and support.

The TCF also provides the operational and administrative supervision for the Glassware Washing Division, Molecular Biology Materials Support Division, and all UNC Lineberger shared equipment and resources, which provide logical extensions to the TCF’s support services. Together, the combined shared resources offer incomparable cost-to-benefit value for UNC Lineberger members and to UNC researchers in general.
