Facility Details

VAI’s Pathology and Biorepository Core (PBC) integrates anatomic pathology expertise with biorepository and biospecimen science for investigator- and project-driven research. The Core builds upon strengths in standard histology, microscopy, molecular processing, and biobanking, along with novel technologies to test and apply best practices in biospecimen science. The Core’s focus on pathology and molecular quality metrics provide complementary emphasis on high-quality biospecimens and interpretable results with which to validate experimental models and extend them to clinical samples, thereby advancing the Institute’s mission to improve the health and enhance the lives of current and future generations.

The Pathology and Biorepository Core is led by Dr. Scott Jewell, who has extensive expertise in experimental pathology, immunology and biobanking, and Associate Director of Pathology Dr. Galen Hostetter, a board-certified pathologist with NIH fellowship training in medical genetics. The PBC has been accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) since 2012.
