Established and emerging technologies are needed by CCR investigators in order to systematically dissect the heterogeneity of cancer in order to gain a better understanding of the causes of invasion, metastasis, and therapy resistance. These coveted technologies have been identified as having the strongest footing among the leading institutions around the world that are focused on Single Cell (SC) genomic analysis. The OSTR is dedicated to providing these groundbreaking technologies to CCR investigators through educational and informational resources designed to introduce users to various scientific methodologies, as well as seminars on current advancements in scientific methods and instrumentation.
