TACMASR is fortunate to have board certified Pathologist and Director Dr. Witkiewicz. The availability of an experienced clinical and research Pathologist is vital for cancer research.

Dr. Witkiewicz provides:

  • Pathologic and quality review of tissue samples collected by the UACC Biorepository before they are entered into the tissue bank.
  • Pathologic and quality review of tissue sample cohorts requested by investigators from one of the several biobanks we access.
  • Quality control and assistance with fine tuning the conditions for successful immunohistochemistry staining.

Investigators and their labs may also wish to consult with Dr. Witkiewicz for:

  • Experimental design assistance.
  • Evaluation and/or scoring of stained tissue.
  • Assistance with designing custom tissue microarrays.
