The Rodent Histopathology Core was founded in 1999 as one of the pathology cores within the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. The Core was established to provide high quality professional, technical, and educational pathology services. The ultimate goal of the facility has been to support investigator research that leads to the identification of pathologic processes in mice and can be directly translatable to human disease.
The core provides an essential and unique service to the many Center members and labs invested in mouse research. While many commercial and academic histology services are available, no other service is available that offers comparable high quality service with rapid turn around time and highly experienced professional supervision. The educational mission of the Core also adds an important dimension.
