The Cellular and Molecular Pathology Branch (CMPB) conducts research on spontaneous and chemically induced lesions and the mechanisms by which they are induced. It also manages, evaluates, reviews and reports all pathology data generated during the conduct of National Toxicology Program (NTP) (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/) toxicity and carcinogenicity studies. In addition, the CMPB maintains state-of the-science histology, electron microscopy, clinical pathology and special techniques core laboratories and provides diagnostic pathology support to all NIEHS investigators and the NIEHS laboratory animal colony.
