Biochemistry & Cancer Biology

Laboratory Facilities

The Department of Biochemistry & Cancer Biology is located on the 4th floor of the Block Health Science Building. Our modern research laboratories are fully equipped for studies using state-of-the art techniques in biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology. In addition to the laboratories of the individual faculty, the department maintains shared cold rooms, a dark room, a core laboratory for culture of human and other mammalian cell lines, microscopy facilities for fluorescence imaging and single cell microinjection, and instrumentation laboratories equipped with several ultracentrifuges, DNA thermal-cyclers, FPLC and HPLC systems, spectrophotometers, scintillation counters, Beckman CEQ2000 automated DNA sequencing system, and a Kodak 440CF chemiluminescence image station, Packard FUSION universal microplate reader configured for BRET and AlphaScreen assays, an ABI 7500 real-time PCR sequence detection system, and a Biacore 3000 surface plasmon resonance system. All computers in the department are connected to UT's network servers and have capabilities for color printing, campus-wide data sharing, high-speed internet access, and access to bioinformatics resources and library electronic journals.

In addition to the resources located within the department, all faculty members have access to UT's core labs (genomics, flow cytometry, electron microscopy) and AAALAC-accredited animal care facilities (DLAR).
