Translational Pathology Shared Resources

The Translational Pathology Shared Resources include the Experimental Pathology Core Lab and the UAMS Tissue Biorepository and Procurement Service (TBAPS).

The Experimental Pathology Shared Resource Laboratory provides UAMS researchers with centralized, comprehensive histological services. Jennifer James serves as manager of this lab.

The UAMS Tissue Biorepository and Procurement Service is an institution-wide tissue procurement facility that serves to coordinate and oversee the donation, processing, storage, and dissemination of tissue specimens and related data. Remelle Eggerson serves as manager of this facility.

Clinical trial research involving fluid/serum samples analyzed in the UAMS Clinical Laboratories follow the procedure described here.

Pathobiology Graduate Track

Pathobiology is an interdisciplinary field that strives to understand the mechanisms of disease at fundamental levels. The Pathobiology Track is an option for graduate students enrolled in the GPIBS program at UAMS. The Pathobiology Track offers students a flexible program of advanced study and research in experimental pathobiology, and the opportunity to be mentored by a wide range of basic science and clinical faculty who share a common interest in understanding the molecular basis of human disease. The Pathobiology Track offers flexibility in its program to permit each student to pursue the most effective course of study and research.
