Pathology Network Shared Resource

The Pathology Network Shared Resource (PNSR) provides human specimens and laboratory services for basic and translational research to further the understanding of human cancers. Our overall mission is to facilitate access to biospecimens for research conducted at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Functionally, the PNSR is divided into:

  • Biospecimens, tissue procurement and banking
    • DNA
    • RNA
    • FFPE tissue
    • Fresh tissue
    • Frozen tissue
    • TMA library
  • Histology Facility
    • General histology
    • Laser microdissection
    • TMA construction and staining
  • Leukemia (blood) procurement and banking
  • Image scanning and analysis
  • Spectral karyotyping (SKY)
  • Correlative Science Pathology Office (CSPO)

The PNSR consists of multiple functional units, with overall leadership by Drs. Wiam Bshara, and Eunice Wang, who lead the solid and liquid tumor (leukemia) divisions, respectively.
