The CU Cancer Center is committed to promoting rigor and reproducibility in research. We encourage all investigators to maintain best practices in their respective fields of research to ensure robust experimental design, innovative methods, appropriate cell and animal models and use of authenticated biological and/or chemical resources. CU Cancer Center members using cell lines, xenograft models, and tissue samples in their research where sample identification and characterization at the species, tissue and cell level are critical for the research, are encouraged to review the following Best Laboratory Practices developed for the center by Drs. Christopher Korch and Rebecca Schweppe.
Additional information and resources can be found on NIH’s website providing guidance on rigor and reproducibility in grant applications.
