iLab Operations Software Support will be staffed at reduced levels during the week Feb. 25 - Mar 1. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically. To escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket / email subject or if dialling the iLab support phone press "1" when prompted (regional specific numbers can be found here). You can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information.

VUMC Innovative Translational Research Shared Resource (ITR)


Overview of Services


The Innovative Translational Research Shared Resource (ITR) at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center partners with oncologists, and laboratory and non-laboratory researchers, to guide, manage, and facilitate pre-clinical and clinical trial laboratory discoveries.

Our goal is to advance the translation of research into improved anti-cancer therapies.


Custom projects accepted!

Our broad experience in cancer clinical trials, genomics, biochemistry, and cell biology allows us to pursue your unique research project. We leverage ITR resources, other Vanderbilt Shared Resources, other academic institutions, and/or companies to achieve your goals.


Specific ITR Laboratory Services

The ITR is fully equipped for DNA and RNA isolation from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, sample storage, molecular genetics and biochemistry laboratory experimentation, as well as cell culture.
