NCI-CCR Resource Categories
The CCR Office of the Director invests heavily in advanced biotechnology infrastructure. CCR places a high priority on earmarking of technology funds and subsidies for affordable access to core facilities and these advanced technology platforms. Taken together, this portfolio of scientific expertise and technological resources provide investigators of the CCR with one of the richest scientific environments in the world to conduct basic or clinical research.
Centralized research resource facilities that provide access to advanced instrumentation, cutting-edge technologies, and expert consultation. Cores provide hubs of innovation and connect scientists with tools and expertise that can advance their research to the next level.
A multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional network of resources whose collective efforts can enable transformational advances in the most promising research areas. The program is designed to foster scientific breakthroughs by providing resources not usually available to individual investigators, or small groups.
The Collaborative Research Exchange (CREx) is an online NIH marketplace for investigators to search, browse, and request information for research services, technologies, or products offered by NCI/NIH Cores, Collaborative Resources, and commercial vendors.
