Histology Core Facility
Histology is a branch of biology concerned with the composition and structure of plant and animal tissues in relation to their specialized functions1.
The fundamental aim of histology is to determine how tissues are organized at all structural levels, from cells and intercellular substances to organs1.
The Department of Biomedicine Histology Core Facility (hereinafter HCF) enables researchers to perform histological assays aimed at answering questions relative to the composition of tissues and the in-situ localization of organic molecules.
The Facility provides the support and the equipment to prepare tissue specimens for paraffin embedding, sectioning, cryosectioning and histological stains.
