Molecular Pathology Core Laboratory (MPCL)

Overview of Services

The Molecular Pathology Core Laboratory group works to advance molecular pathology-based, cancer research. The group addresses significant scientific and clinical research needs, and has created a central hub where researchers can interact, collaborate, and utilize novel molecular pathology technologies to translate basic science discoveries into patient care applications for cancer. Our mission comprises comprehensive pathology annotation to encompass clinical, morphological and molecular characteristics, genetic discovery in primary human tumors, with limited material and in real time, novel biomarker identification and pre-clinical trials and transitioning assays to the clinical setting.
