Surgical Services

While PATh’s chief purpose is to provide a comprehensive pre-clinical platform to reliably develop cancer models and test novel therapeutics, we understand that there may not always be a need for all the services that are offered. Therefore, we also offer our PDX services in an a la carte fashion. Second, the PATh facility has over twenty years of small animal surgical experience with a wide variety of expertise. Listed below are some of the core competencies that PATh can perform along with a willingness to try novel procedures that may be necessary to complete experiments. Budgets for surgical procedures can be created after a consultation to discuss investigator needs.
