Medical Examiners and Pathologists
Medical Examiners are essential to our mission.
Medical examiners and pathologist assistants are essential for the retrieval and banking of brain and other tissue. We rely on these professionals throughout the United States to properly recover brains and perform the initial steps for tissue preservation and for shipment of fixed and frozen specimens to our facility in Baltimore, Maryland.
