Microbiome Facility

In response to the increasing realization of the role that microbes play in cancer prevention, pathogenesis and therapy, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center created the microbiome functional core facility.

The overall goal of this facility is to centralize microbiome benchwork and provide systematic service support from clinical or preclinical sample collection/banking, genomic processing and analysis, and culturing of defined flora to gnotobiotic model establishment.
