  1. Resource Description
    "The Tissue Distribution Program is administered through the Pathology Services Unit. Tissues are collected prospectively at the request of the recipient and according to the recipient’s protocol. Priority is given to OHSU investigators. Off campus investigators typically receive fresh tissue shipped overnight or frozen tissues shipped within 10 days of collection. Several types of tissues (including reproductive tracts, tisseeus from aged animals and liver as a source of genomic DNA) are collected and stored as a resource for distribution by other ONPRC cores. These tissues are collected and frozen by the Pathology Unit and transferred for storage and cataloging by the respective programs. The animals used for the Tissue Distribution Program are both investigator-assigned animals and colony assigned animals. The intent is to maximize the utilization of the limited nonhuman primate resource. The phenotypic data available for each tissue is extensive. Each animal receives a complete gross necropsy with histologic examination as appropriate (determined by the pathologist.) Gross necropsy includes complete visual examination of all organs and collection of organ weights. All of this information is linked to the animal’s individual record which includes signalment, source, geographic origin, medical and surgical history and reproductive history."
