The mission of The University of Arizona Cancer Center Analytical Chemistry Shared Service (ACSS) is to provide Cancer Center investigators with centralized resources and expertise in performing analytical chemistry assays and pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data analysis and interpretation. The Analytical Chemistry Shared Service has been built around chromatography based instrumentation which provides the sensitivity and selectivity needed fo the analysis of small molecules in pre-clinical drug discovery, chemical structure ID/confirmation, and analysis of inorganic chemicals.
Specifically, the ACSS has the following aims:
- To provide Cancer Center investigators with support in the development of chromatography-based analytical methods;
- To provide Cancer Center investigators with support in routine quantitative analysis of clinical and pre-clinical samples;
- To provide consultation in pharmacokinetic trial design and pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data analysis.
By continuing to provide state-of-the-art analytical and pharmacokinetic services, the ACSS laboratory should greatly augment pre-clinical drug discovery efforts and stimulate the incorporation of pharmacokinetic endpoints in clinical trials.
