Research Programs  

SKI’s research enterprise is organized into nine programs that encompass the diversity of modern biomedical sciences. SKI investigators pursue research that spans the full spectrum of discovery, from basic science to preclinical, translational, and postclinical research.

Core Facilities and Resources

Scientists working in SKI labs have access to extensive technological support through the institute’s many core facilities. The cores perform vital services for our scientists and permit even small labs to do big science. 

SKI has its own cryo-electron microscope (a Titan Krios with a Gatan K3 Summit detector), a Multiplexed Ion Beam Imaging (MIBI) platform, tools for intravital imaging, and a GMP-grade cell manufacturing facility. We also offer extensive support services for technology development.

Research Collaborations

Collaborative science is a hallmark of SKI’s approach. The close proximity of SKI to a world-class cancer hospital means that laboratory investigators and clinicians can easily collaborate to speed translational discoveries. SKI investigators also collaborate with their peers at other institutions.
