The George Martin-Dennis Reichenbach Endowment in Pathology
July 05, 2017 in Education, Research
Join us in honoring George Martin and Dennis Reichenbach’s deep and lasting commitment to research, education, and the development of new leaders for the discipline of pathology. No depiction of the strength of our department would be complete without noting the impact Dennis and George have had on generations of graduate students, post-doctoral students, and junior faculty. By supporting the George Martin-Dennis Reichenbach Endowment, you are not only honoring the amazing impact of two exceptional scientists, you are enabling early career pathologists to pursue their research interests that fall outside of the traditional focus areas of federal funding programs. In the spirit of the indelible impact Drs. Martin and Reichenbach continue to have on our field, this endowment’s purpose is to foster innovative research and better inform our fight against disease.
Microscope can scan tumors during surgery and examine cancer biopsies in 3-D
July 05, 2017
A versatile light-sheet microscope developed by a team of University of Washington mechanical engineers, including Adam Glaser and Jonathan Liu, and UW Medicine pathologists, Nicholas Reder and Larry True, can provide surgeons with real-time pathology data to guide cancer-removal surgeries and can also non-destructively examine tumor biopsies in 3D. It can rapidly and non-destructively image the margins of large fresh tissue specimens with the same level of detail as traditional pathology — in no more than 30 minutes.
