The Histology Core provides training and research support in anatomy and histology of chemosensory systems. Core personnel work with researchers to develop and optimize cutting-edge techniques in histology to advance our anatomical, cellular and molecular understanding of taste, olfactory, gut, and brain systems. The Core provides centralized services such as tissue preparation and processing, sectioning, immunohistochemistry, and in situ hybridization.
The Histology Core also houses the Imaging Facility that provides microscopy instruments for visualization of chemosensory tissues. Facility personnel provide training and assistance with experimental design, image acquisition, and data analysis.
