Alpha Core

The center identifies diagnostic needs and opportunities in cancer care and facilitates the development of new and innovative technologies to address these needs.  To facilitate these new technologies, CFTCC houses an Alpha Core prototyping lab on the Boston University campus that enables researchers (from industry, academia, and medicine) from across the country to build rapid prototypes of their devices.

For individuals or companies who would like to submit an idea/project to be prototyped in the CFTCC Alpha Core Lab, please fill out the form below and email it to
