Pathology

The Basic Science Program conducts independent research in basic and applied molecular biology, immunology, retrovirology, cancer biology, and human genetics.  Our goal is to understand biological processes related to cancer and other diseases and to develop cutting-edge tools to accelerate scientific progress.  The program’s areas of focus…
The Laboratory of Human Retrovirology and Immunoinformatics performs basic, clinical, and bioinformatic research to gain a better understanding of the immunopathological effects of HIV and HIV-related infectious diseases and how they’re influenced by genetics. We support and collaborate with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious…
Overview The NCI Mouse Repository is a resource for mouse cancer models and associated strains. This repository is funded by the National Cancer Institute and managed by Frederick National Laboratory. The repository makes strains available to all members of the scientific community. These strains are cryoarchived and distributed as frozen…
The Viral Oncology Section studies the role of viruses in cancer, focusing primarily on Kaposi’s sarcoma–associated herpesvirus (KSHV) and related malignancies. Our research encompasses epidemiology, molecular virology, immunology, and translational studies. 
The Tissue Analysis Core provides state-of-the-art tissue analysis capabilities including immunofluorescence, single and double label immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, quantitative image analysis, and laser capture microdissection. The core supports investigators within the AIDS and Cancer Virus Program and both intramural and…
The Retroviral Pathogenesis Section conducts both in vitro and in vivo research to improve the basic understanding of AIDS virus pathogenesis through applied and basic studies. Applied studies evaluate candidate vaccines and other prevention approaches, along with studies of novel drug and immunotherapeutic interventions to target virus that…
Image Immunohistochemistry (IHC) of urothelial carcinoma (yellow) with infiltrating CD3+ lymphocytes (green).The Laboratory Animal Sciences Program is a comprehensive resource for scientists performing animal-based research to better understand cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other infectious diseases. We provide…
