The Shared Resource Laboratories of Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) provide investigators with access to state-of-the-art technology, instrumentation, and expertise. The primary function of each Resource is to provide expert guidance specific to the use of that  Resource’s technology. Shared Resources are open to all investigators in the Dartmouth research community. It is also open to investigators outside of the community as well.

All Shared Resources recover costs through user fees. Fees are based strictly on cost and determined by the individual Resource. The (NCCC) subsidizes the Cancer Center affiliated Shared Resources through the Cancer Center support grant P30CA023108 enabling them to charge less than full cost.
