Research Pathology and Histology Core

The Research Pathology and Histology Core offers an array of routine and specialized services that support research using rodent and other animal models.

The Histology Core specializes in producing high quality sections using approaches customized to specialized projects, such as embryo studies, neuroanatomical studies or construction of tissue microarrays. In addition, the Histology Core offers a wide array of routine services such as tissue embedding, frozen sectioning and routine or special stains.

The Phenotyping Core offers fee-for-service and collaborative support. This includes custom tissue collection, as well as whole mouse phenotyping, and study design or slide review by an anatomic pathologist.
