The lab has 500 square feet of space and an adjoining office for research activities. The lab is dedicated to the study of the molecular biology of gynecologic cancers under the guidance of Division faculty. The laboratory is focused primarily on translational research, has the facilities for tissue culture, in vitro and in vivo tumor growth assays, and also houses the IRB-approved gynecologic oncology tumor bank.
