About the Core and Lab
The Pathology Core and Lab was created to support the research and clinical activities of the Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine.
We provide pathology-related services to the faculty and collaborators of the Smith Breast Center. Our lab members include pathologists specialized in breast diseases (human and animal models) and the management of clinical and research-oriented laboratories, as well as highly trained and experienced histology and research technicians. The resources include 1,500 square feet of new laboratory space, modern equipment to support all aspects of routine histotechnology, and additional instruments for specialized technologies such as automated immunohistochemistry, quantitative image analysis, laser-capture microdissection, fluorescent microscopy, confocal microscopy, and tissue microarrays.
