UW Neuropathology is responsible for the diagnosis of all biopsies of the central and peripheral nervous system, muscles and eyes, as well as all postmortem brain tissue.

We offer a full complement of expert consultative services in diagnostic neuropathology. Areas of expertise include: neurosurgical pathology, muscle biopsies, peripheral nerve biopsies, ocular pathology, and neurodegenerative disorders. In addition to consultative diagnostic services, the Neuropathology Division assists a large number of scientists in the preparation, histochemical and immunohistochemical staining, and analysis of tissue from models of neurologic diseases.
