Morphology and Phenotyping Core

Overview


Our mission at the Morphology and Phenotyping Core is to provide investigators and their research teams with the tools, knowledge, and technical expertise needed to process and analyze their tissue samples.  We offer a wide array of services including paraffin and OCT embedding, sectioning of frozen and paraffin blocks, as well as routine (H&E) and special staining for all types of tissues.  Other histological services are available upon request.  Finally, consultations are available to investigators as necessary. 

Although all tissue samples can be processed by the Core, we particularly specialize in skin. For instructions on how to best prepare skin samples,  please click here.
