On any given day, microscopist Susan Lea, D.Phil., and her team at NCI at Frederick collect more data than can fit on any standard hard drive, creating a challenge for data storage and analysis. Their average data collection is 5 terabytes, a quantity roughly 20 times the storage capacity of a 256-gigabyte laptop or the equivalent of storing…

Think of a tumor and you might envision a disorganized mass. But tumors can also form a thin sheet over a surface. These can be hard to treat, especially when the surface has wrinkles and crevices. But there may be a new approach. Solid tumors can be successfully removed with surgery and residual cells destroyed. But cancers like the asbestos-…

The Protein Expression Laboratory generates DNA, cell line, and protein reagents for biomedical research from basic science to drug discovery. The team uses cutting-edge protein production technologies to generate proteins using bacteria, insect cells, or mammalian cells at scales from micrograms to grams. Quality control is a major emphasis of…

The Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNL) not only tackles some of the world’s greatest biomedical challenges but also serves as a shared national resource to enable high-quality research beyond its walls. One way FNL does this is through the Technical Services Program. The Technical Services Program gives investigators…
