Histology (Morphology and Phenotyping) Core


The objective of the Histology (Morphology and Phenotyping Core) is to provide investigators with the tools and expertise to process and analyze tissue samples. Although all tissue samples can be processed by the Core, the Core particularly specializes in skin samples. For instructions on preparing skin samples for histological processing, please click here.

Core services include assistance with skin harvesting, preparation of paraffin blocks, sectioning of paraffin and frozen blocks, and standard H&E histology. For a histology request form, please click here.
