UW Neuropathology is responsible for the diagnosis of all surgical and autopsy specimens of the central and peripheral nervous system, skeletal muscles, and eyes & orbits.

Through the Neuropathology Reference Lab we offer a full complement of expert consultative services in diagnostic neuropathology. Areas of expertise include: neurosurgical pathology, skeletal 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 experimental models of neurological disease.
