Achim Jungbluth, MD, PhD and Denise Frosina, MT, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY

Paraffin blocks containing several tissues have become a major tool in surgical pathology. As multi-tissue blocks, they usually consist of few rather large samples and as tissue micro-arrays they may contain up to several hundred small sized tissue cores. This webinar will discuss a novel approach using carrier-based multi-tissue blocks (CBMTBs) to generate multi-tissue blocks employing tissue as a carrier in which tissue cores are inserted. The webinar will cover the application of CBMTMs and its benefits.

Presenter Bio:  Denise Frosina is the senior technologist in the IHC Development Lab  at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for the past six years.  She has worked together with Dr. Jungbluth to develop the Carrier-Based Multi-Tissue Block technique. Before joining the Pathology Department at MSKCC she worked for 17 years as a Research Assistant at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research performing mostly immunohistochemistry assays in studying tumor immunology and antibody development.
 
Dr. Jungbluth is the Director of the IHC Developmental Lab in the Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York, where his focus is the development, standardization and initialization of novel IHC protocols for patient care and translational research. For over twenty years, Dr. Jungbluth was Director of Pathology at the New York Branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) at MSKCC. Dr. Jungbluth received his MD/PhD at the University of Giessen and Wurzberg in Germany and performed his pathology training at the University Hospital of Mainz and Darmstadt, Germany.
 
Addtional Information:  This webinar was presented June 2019 as part of the NSH Laboratory Webinar Series.
