Who we serve

U-M research investigators.

The Rogel Cancer Center Tissue and Molecular Pathology (TMP) Shared Resource (SR) consists of several distinct, yet complementary services relating to the procurement and evaluation of tissue for research. The Tissue Procurement Core provides pathology sanctioned procurement of surgically resected neoplastic and non-neoplastic tissue (fresh and frozen). The Histology Core and the Molecular Pathology Research Laboratory (MPRL) are fee for service facilities offering a full spectrum of histology and staining services. The Histology Core provides sample processing, embedding and routine H&E staining. The MPRL core performs immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization, multiplex immunofluorescence and FISH staining as a complementary service. We also construct tissue microarrays. The staff and directors are always willing to discuss how we can facilitate your research.
