Digestive Health Center

Pathology Research Service

Personnel will provide technical support for routine morphology based techniques including tissue processing, routine histology, in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, routine and special histochemical staining, electron microscopy support, and pathologic evaluation.

For more information visit the Pathology Research Core.

Remember that Consultation is Free. 
Discussing what you want to do with the Core Staff for 30 minutes before you start your experiment might save lots of time in the end.
