The mission of the Cell Engineering Shared Resource (CESR) is to serve the scientific needs of Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center (WFBCCC) researchers by offering expertise in cell culture/cell line engineering/viral vector propagation, and providing the resources to analyze cell growth/death in vitro and in vivo under a wide variety of experimental conditions.

The Cell Engineering Shared Resource is capable of designing, implementing and optimizing new cell culture/transduction procedures on behalf of investigators, and can conduct short-term experiments efficiently in a cost-effective manner.

The CESR houses advanced instrumentation for monitoring cell growth in vivo and in vitro, offers an on-site stockroom and acts as a central site for purchasing and distributing specific culture media/reagents, molecular biology kits, and standard laboratory supplies.
