Jack Longley, MD
Skin disease causes significant morbidity, economic loss, and mortality to the US population, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or socio-economic group. A lack of appropriately prepared skin samples and expertise in processing and interpreting both human and animal skin are barriers to skin disease research. The Experimental Cutaneous Pathology Core will increase access to all types of skin samples and skin-specific pathology expertise, thereby benefitting the population of the US.
The Core Leader for the Experimental Cutaneous Pathology Core is B. Jack Longley, MD. Dr. Longley has over 30 years of experience in diagnostic and experimental pathology involving both human and animal skin. He is the director of the UW Dermatopathology Laboratory, which functions with the Mohs Surgical Laboratory.
The specific aims of the Experimental Cutaneous Pathology Core are:
The Experimental Cutaneous Pathology Core (ECPC) offers a variety of services available to researchers interested in skin biology. We have samples of normal human skin, as well as samples of various human skin diseases, including de-identified specimens. In addition to formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples, the ECPC also offers fresh tissue samples. Please see the list of services below for more information or see our fee schedule.
Histology, Immunohistochemistry/In situ Hybridization
Tissue Microarray (TMA) Construction
COMING SOON: Laser Capture Microscopy (LCM)
Dr. Sullivan offers technical and professional support for histologic analysis of animal models of human disease, especially rodent models. She will provide animal pathology consulting services, including diagnostic evaluation, in concert with Dr. Longley. Together they hold their slide review sessions for UW SDRC members on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 9:00 a.m. at WIMR 2, Room 6525.
Dr. Sullivan also holds monthly open slide reviews for the UW Carbone Cancer Center on the last Monday of the month at 1pm at WIMR 2, Room 6525. All are welcome to attend those sessions.
