Contribute to the general supervision of the immunohistochemical and immunofluorescence staining service offered by the CPC.
Secondary responsibilities are duties in the small animal diagnostic pathology services, including our surgical biopsy and autopsy units. These activities entail provision of diagnostic service for the Penn Vet Mathew J.
