Diagnostic Services Research and Development

UTCVM Diagnostic Laboratory Services support research activities. Availability of anatomic pathology (biopsy, necropsy) interpretation services depend on pathology faculty availability and interest. Histology processing of tissues (without pathologist’s interpretation) and other testing services are available on a fee-for-service basis; logistics and turn-around-time may vary depending on individual project needs and timelines and must be approved by the relevant Laboratory Director. All inquiries about diagnostic laboratory testing research support should be directed to Dr. Bente Flatland, Director of Diagnostic Laboratory Services, at bflatlan@utk.edu or (865) 974-5570. Please contact us as far in advance as possible when planning a research project.
