Center for Translational Pathology

The Center for Translational Pathology (CTP) will provide investigators with high quality, state of the art, and cost-effective tissue-based and clinical laboratory assays, biospecimens, consultative pathology services, multiparametric imaging, mass spectrometry, molecular pathology, mouse models and advanced cellular therapeutics for basic, translational, and clinical research. Originally established in 2007 as the Translational Research Program (TRP) within the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine, the TRP has since grown and expanded to include numerous core facilities within the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. This new center will be a pillar for the Meyer Cancer Center and its designation as an NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center.

To request technical and/or professional services from the Center for Translational Pathology, please first create an account using your username and password to submit a request. All required information must be completed, including your account number for billing (for internal requests). Prior IRB approval must be received to process any requests involving tissue samples. Once approved, we will assign you a project number. If you have any questions, please contact Bing He via  e-mail or at (212) 746-6225.

The Center for Translational Pathology’s Investigational Cellular Therapy Laboratory offers researchers cutting edge cGMP support to generate experimental cell-based therapeutic products.
