Award Description: This supplemental request encompasses activities of the Emory Epithelial Pathobiology Research Development Center core facilities and will update and add to essential components of the Morphology/Image Analysis Core (Core B) and Cell Culture and Monoclonal Antibody Core (Core C). For Core B activities, we are requesting the addition of a CCD camera that will broaden the scope of the microscopy core to live cell imaging. Similarly, new lenses are requested for the microscope in order to update and improve image acquisition capacity. In the cryosectioning room, a knife holder and blades to be amenable for section of hard tissues such as bone. For Core C, we are requesting new stacking incubators that are vital for maintenance of the large variety of cell line stocks in the facility, culture of cells on transwells and growth of hybridomas. Similarly, increased needs for cold storage of supplies for routine tissue culture work and preparation of cells would be met with a new case-style refrigerator and temperature controlled centrifuge in the core facility. These equipment requests will thus broaden the core facilities for the DDRDC membership and will accelerate the tempo of the scientific research.
