Cancer Genomics Shared Resource

Overview of Services

The Cancer Genomics Shared Resource (CGSR) of the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is an NCI-supported laboratory that provides comprehensive genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic profiling analyses for research and diagnostic purposes.

The Molecular Biology and Genomics Core Laboratory, which recently merged with the CGSR, is a full-service, CLIA certified facility located in the Levine Cancer Institute at Carolinas Medical Center under the direction of Nury Steuerwald, PhD, HCLD (ABB). Its mission is to develop and offer novel clinical molecular diagnostic tests in support of our clinicians and for the benefit of our patients.

The CGSR works closely with other Cancer Center Shared Resources, such as the Tumor Tissue and Pathology Shared Resource, the Proteomics and Metabolomics Shared Resource, the Biostatistics Shared Resource, and the Bioinformatics Shared Resource, to provide users with a coordinated approach to conduct their research.


The CGSR provides technical and analytical expertise in genomics research to facilitate high-impact translational science, basic research, and clinical diagnostics. The CGSR provides faculty with comprehensive and cost-competitive genetic analyses focused on Next-Generation sequencing (NGS), DNA microarray technologies and bioinformatics solutions. 

Focus Area 

  • Whole genome/whole exome sequencing
  • RNA sequencing
  • Single cell RNA sequencing and multi-omic/spatial analysis
  • Nucleic acid (RNA/DNA) isolation and QC
  • Development of clinical genomic tests


The CGSR is co-directed by:

Lance D. Miller, Ph.D., Professor, Cancer Biology

Gregory A. Hawkins, Ph.D., Professor, Biochemistry

Nury Steuerwald, PhD, HCLD (ABB), Levine Cancer Center
