Shared Resources

Led by David F. Stern, PhD, Associate Director for Shared Resources, Yale Cancer Center has seven Shared Resources that provide access for Center members to technologies, services, and scientific consultations that facilitate scientific interactions and enhance scientific productivity.


Through our seven interdisciplinary Research Programs, members discover areas of joint interest and effort. Lab-based scientists, clinical investigators, and population scientists are all encouraged to connect across departments and areas of study to find innovative ways of treating, controlling, and preventing cancer.

Funding Support

The Yale Cancer Center Pilot Awards program has disbursed nearly $8 million dollars since 2012 to promising projects in cancer research, and historically, has a large return on investment. The Pilot Award competition is open only to YCC members. View Funding Opportunities here 

Administrative Resources
