Pathology Core Facility
The Pathology Core Facility has three main components: research histology, specimen procurement and protocol review. The research histology component provides all of the tissue processing and histology services are typically performed in a clinical laboratory, but it is specifically dedicated to the needs of the Northwestern University research community in general and the Cancer Center research community in particular. The Pathology Core Facility is unique in that it has the capability and flexibility to address specific research protocol needs. The tissue procurement component of the Pathology Core Facility has two main functions: (1) human tissue and fluid procurement, storage and distribution and (2) quality assurance and protection of research subjects. The tissue procurement component addresses the growing need for human tissue and serves as an "honest broker" with HIPAA-covered entities in an effort to expedite research activities, particularly in the use of human biological materials and associated data.
