The University awarded a contract for Histology Laboratory Services to Provena Hospitals, Urbana, IL, for an estimated $50,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
department must work with Dr. Krishnarao Tangella, the Medical Director of the Provena Laboratory. Professional collaboration is of the utmost importance because, in order to have the highest quality processed tissue, the tissue processing must be overseen by someone who is fully versed in the needs of both research programs. Dr. Tangella fulfills this role because he was a co-author of the NIH grant.
