In its study of head and neck cancers, the Division is supported by a highly qualified technical staff and state-of-the-art immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology laboratories.

One of the Division's most important and recent acquisitions is its rapid microwave-enhanced tissue histoprocessor, which processes tissue six times faster than conventional tissue processors. This enables us to offer same day diagnostic turnaround of tissue samples.
