Pathology Shared Resource (PSR)

Directors: Tsongalis, Gregory; Wells, Wendy A.


Our mission is to facilitate project planning, clinical validation and implementation of novel translational technology and research in the fields of molecular diagnostics, molecular therapeutics, pharmacogenomics, quantitative morphologic image analysis and immunohistochemistry (IHC) in a CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory ensuring optimal clinical quality assurance. This past year, the TRL expanded its physical footprint by moving all the histology services to a 5th floor research module in order to reorganize and expand the molecular biology and imaging services in the 6th floor lab.
