Neuropathology

Clinical services include examination of central and peripheral nervous system tissues for diagnosis and  support of the mission of clinical departments including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Radiology and Psychiatry.  We perform our services in close collaboration with multiple other departmental units including but not limited to Molecular Pathology and Cytogenetics. We provide both general tissue diagnoses as well as special testing using immunocytochemistry, in situ hybridization and molecular biology technology. Educational activities include teaching neuropathology to pathology, neurology and neurosurgery residents and medical students through scheduled neuropathology rotations, conferences and lectures. Research activities are performed through extensive collaboration with a number of other departments and programs including Ophthalmology, Microbiology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Radiology with main research areas of nervous system infections, brain tumors, and degenerative, developmental and vascular diseases of the nervous system.
