Histology lab

The laboratory is a part of the Cellular & Molecular Imaging Core Facility (CMIC) and the Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine (IKOM). We work in close collaboration with St. Olavs hospital.

The laboratory is located in the Laboratory Center, fourth floor, east.


Long-term projects that involve many hours of technical assistance should be discussed in a project meeting with CMIC before the request is sent. In this way CMIC can make sure that the project planning fits with other ongoing activities at the Histology lab.


Please contact Kathrin Juanita Gravvold Torseth to consult about your experiments to develop the best plan for using our facilities.
