Core Summary

The Rogel Cancer Center Tissue and Molecular Pathology (TMP) Shared Resource (SR) consists of three distinct, yet complementary services relating to the procurement and evaluation of tissue for research: Tissue Procurement, Histology, and Molecular Pathology. The Tissue Procurement service provides pathology-sanctioned procurement of surgically resected neoplastic and non-neoplastic tissue (fresh and frozen). The Histology Core provides sample processing, embedding, sectioning, routine H&E, special staining, and immunohistochemistry, as a fee-for-service core. The Molecular Pathology Research Laboratory (MPRL) performs immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization, multiplex immunofluorescence, FISH staining, and tissue microarray construction, as a fee-for-service core.
