Cancer Tissue Pathology Core


The goal of the Cancer Tissue Pathology Core is to provide high-quality tissue processing, histology and staining services to Stephenson Cancer Center members and other investigators.

The core provides tissue processing, embedding, sectioning, histochemical staining of mounted slides, immunohistochemical (IHC) staining for paraffin embedded and frozen tissues, immunocytochemical (ICC) staining for cultured cells (as tissue sections or cytospin slides), evaluation of new antibodies for IHC staining, enzyme histochemistry and special staining. 

The core also provides defined analyses including RNA / DNA preparation, reverse transcription and cDNA synthesis from total RNA, construction, staining and analysis of tissue microarrays, and construction and analysis of reverse proteomics array from user-defined biospecimens.

The core is flexible to accommodate the development of new techniques and expanding its services based on the research requirements of Stephenson Cancer Center research members and other investigators.
