The Division of Comparative Pathology manages the Comparative Pathology Core Laboratory (CPCL), which is one of many shared resources or core facilities established by St. Jude to support all research programs on campus. These shared resources are equipped with sophisticated instrumentation not readily available to individual laboratories and are staffed by experts that make cutting-edge technologies accessible and affordable to investigators. These shared resources play a significant role in accelerating clinical and basic research. The CPCL provides investigators with access to clinical pathology (hematology, clinical chemistry, serology, bacteriology, and molecular diagnostics) and anatomic pathology (collection, processing, staining, and evaluation of tissues). In addition, the CPCL provides advanced research pathology support services, such as immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization assay development, whole slide scanning and image analysis, laser capture microdissection, and tissue-based spatial technologies. Faculty in the Division of Comparative Pathology also collaborate with experts in other shared resource laboratories that provide St. Jude investigators with electron microscopy and cell and tissue imaging services.
