immunohistochemistry. The trainee is expected to initiate
research that can be completed during the second year of training.
Opportunities for research in neuroimmunology, neurogenetics, molecular
biology, tumor neuropathology, and demyelinating and neurodegenerative diseases

Laboratories are provided in the second year of training. The annual volume of
specimens includes approximately 600 autopsy brain, 3400 neurosurgical, 1000
skeletal muscle, 500 peripheral nerve, and 200 eye specimens.
