The ONPRC Integrated Pathology Core was established to provide high-quality, state-of-the-art conventional and advanced histology, research pathology, microscopy, and image analysis services and expertise to investigators and pathologists at the institutional, regional, and national level in support of research using nonhuman primate models in studies relevant to human health and disease. The Integrated Pathology Core provides an integrated and comprehensive environment and infrastructure, working with investigators to meet their research pathology needs from project design through support of manuscript preparation. The IPC serves research programs in neuroscience, reproductive and developmental biology, cardiometabolic health, and pathobiology and immunology in nonhuman primate models as well as the histology needs of the Pathology Service Unit diagnostic support of the ONPRC NHP colony.
The successful IPC histology manager will oversee the daily operations of the histology laboratory, which performs basic and specialized procedures in the areas of processing, microtomy, staining, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization and cryotomy. The position requires hiring, oversight, and training of histology technicians; and ensuring efficient workflow and quality control standards within the laboratory in close coordination with research investigators and veterinary pathologists.
