The IUSCCC In Vivo Therapeutics Core (IVT) provides investigators with cost-effective and comprehensive services to facilitate the development and testing of novel pharmacological & cellular therapies. The Core will act as a liaison between the Principal Investigator and any other outcome analyses from live-phase studies. The IVT Core also maintains multiple on-site mouse breeding colonies, as well as oversees operation of the cesium irradiator facility.
