The SARC™ Lab, a division of sarcoma services, is a translational and basic science research laboratory specializing in the molecular genetics of sarcomas and related diseases. The SARC™ Lab routinely employs molecular (e.g., cDNA gene expression profiling, RT-PCR, western blots, etc.) and cell biology (viability assays, apoptosis, etc.) techniques and assays to address questions pertaining to the molecular classification and biology/pathogenesis of sarcomas and mesenchymal neoplasia. In order to fulfill this goal, we also use a variety of specialty core facilities (CF) maintained by the University of Utah, including the Microarray CF, the Genomics CF, the Flow Cytometry CF, and the Protein/Peptide CF.
The SARC™ Lab is part of HCI's Center for Children.
