Core Research Laboratory / Facility Descriptions

Clinical and Anatomic Laboratory Facilities

The Department of Pathology provides a broad range of clinical and anatomic laboratory tests which may be used for research. The clinical lab facilities are located on the second floor of University Hospital and the fourth floor of the Basic Science Building. The cost of each test depends upon the volume and/or combination of tests ordered.
