SUNY SPORE is part of the Department of Pathology at SUNY Upstate Medical University. A core facility provides efficient, high-quality histology and digital pathology lab services for fee-for-service to the Upstate research community, external researchers and private sector companies (pharma/biotech).

In addition to core lab services, SUNY SPORE is open for research collaborations with academic organizations and academia/industry partnerships. Our goal is to create a dynamic research environment for interdisciplinary researchers, clinicians, and pathologists, impacting patients' quality of life by supporting research projects and delivering high-quality research services.
