The histological analysis of tissues is required for a complete understand of mechanisms that control normal development and lead to human disease. There is a growing need to process tissue samples and cellular material from the various mouse models and human tissues studied in the Institute for evaluation at the cellular level. To meet this need, an Experimental Histopathology Lab located on the 2nd floor of the Sciences Naturelles Building has recently been set up with financial support from the Cancéropôle PACA.The platform is located on the 2th floor of Bâtiment Sciences Naturelles.
