Translational Science Biocore (TSB)

The mission of the UWCCC Translational Science BioCore (TSB) is to facilitate research by providing comprehensive services that enable cellular and molecular characterization of animal models and human derived biospecimens with deidentified clinical data. These services are provided through the combined expertise and equipment of the BioBank, the Translational Research Initiatives in Pathology (TRIP) laboratory, and the Experimental Animal Pathology Laboratory (EAPL).


The TSB focuses on support to researchers in  the following three critical areas:

  1. Collection and distribution of patient-consented human-derived biospecimens with clinical data
  2. Construction and distribution of disease-specific human tissue microarrays (TMAs), fully annotated with relevant clinical data
  3. High quality services, expertise, and infrastructure in cellular, molecular, quantitative, and computational pathology
