Pricing information and sample submission

The primary function of the Clinical Pharmacology Shared Resource (CPSR) is to support Dartmouth Cancer Center investigators in the design, analysis, and interpretation of clinical pharmacology objectives in preclinical and clinical studies, including chemoprevention and epidemiological studies. In addition to the biorepository function of our resource, we also have bioanalytical hardware, computer hardware, and state-of-the-art commercial software programs for application to individual and population-based pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling, and modeling drug in vitro and in vivo combination drug effects.
