Alexander B. Osborn Hematopoietic Malignancy and Transplantation Program
Dr. James Coad is a board certified anatomic and clinical pathologist with over 15 years of experience in human/animal research pathology. He is the Director of the Pathology Laboratory for Translational Medicine at West Virginia University. This laboratory serves as the University’s core tissue bank and histology laboratory and provides both the local and national research communities with the access to high quality tissues, processing and histology techniques. Thus, Dr. Coad has extensive experience in collecting, preserving, staining and evaluating both human and animal tissues. He is particularly interested in immunohistochemical and FISH staining methods to locate targeted protein expression (tumor vs adjacent tissues) and an interest in correlating animal models of malignancy with actual human tumor tissues. In addition to his general interests, he has a focus on hematological malignancies, solid organ tumors and the pathology of medical devices.
