Mass Academy Student Creates Quality Slides

I really have to praise both of my high school histology interns, they are smart, hard working, talented students who have created fantastic tissue slides in just 1 week of microtome practice.  Their decision to care about histology and do the best they can really moves me to believe there is still hope for this field to continue to grow.  I sat with one student to go over her slides and teach her about the sections quality and any pertinent cell structural information know.  I was happily surprised to see unbelievable section quality.  All the tissues were in the exact middle of the slide.  This is a hard feat to accomplish for students in their first week of cutting.  The attribute that really surprised me was the artifact free sections.  There were virtually no knife marks, bubbles, tears, folds or wrinkles.  This was in all the 10 tissue types we looked at.  Some of them like pancreas, brain, spinal column are difficult to cut for 10 year veterans.  I thought, my god she really is good.  Take a look at the pictures, decide for yourself.

Woodland Pharmaceuticals Metastasis models

Hello everyone, we are proud to announce that we have been working with Woodland Pharmaceuticals in their project to identify a liver to lung metastasis model (MHCC97H) and are evaluating the lung cancer SQ A549 for lung lesions as well. At this point Woodland Pharmaceuticals is establishing a stable luciferase to express tumor cell lines with their partner SBH Sciences so metastasis can be quantified. They have positive control compounds that will mechanistically block most/all of this metastasis.  We have done all their histology so far and have much more to do.  Follow us with this exciting project.

Here are some of the pictures.
