UTSW O'Brien Kidney Research Core Center: Cell Biology, Pathology and Imaging Core

  

Overview of Services

 

The objectives of the Cell Biology, Pathology and Imaging Core are to provide high quality histopathologic and scientific support for research projects by localizing proteins and/or mRNAs in tissues and cultured cells, and to offer pathology support. The Core maintains a library of wild-type murine embryos and adult tissues embedded in paraffin for use by O'Brien Center investigators. The lab also maintains bright-field, dark-field, phase-contrast, epifluorescence, and confocal microscopes.
