Human Tissue Resource Network


The Human Tissue Resource Network (HTRN) provides a variety of services to researchers and clinicians at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center as well as basic and translational outreach programs throughout the United States and Canada. Services include biospecimen and biofluid procurement and processing, biobanking, histology, tissue microarray (TMA), immunohistochemistry (IHC), fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH) and molecular testing, and virtual microscopy and digital image analysis.

Three federally funded research programs are supported by the HTRN including the Collaborative (AKA Cooperative) Human Tissue Network (CHTN), the ALLIANCE for Clinical Trials and Oncology, and the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center Total Cancer Care Program (TCCP) accompanied by corporate funding and department research programs.

HTRN sections that help to support these programs include the Pathology Core Facility (PCF), Tissue Archive Service (TAS), Research Tissue Procurement Service (RTPS), Specialty Labs including digital imaging and laser capture microscopy, and biorepository services.
