Pathology Shared Resources

Director: Hernandez, Brenda, Ph.D.


The Pathology Shared resource capitalizes on the existing infrastructure of the Center's tissue repository. The Repository currently consists of fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue specimens from hospitals and laboratories statewide. The purpose of the repository is to provide tissue specimens to Center members and other investigators for research purposes. A priority is placed on the provision of specimens for population-based research and peer-reviewed, extramurally funded projects. The repository is a part of the Residual Tissue Repository Program of the NCI SEER program (http://seer.cancer.gov/biospecimen/).
