Scheduling and Billing

Operational Workflow

To ensure efficiency and optimal results, resource members interact closely with investigators. In order to utilize the Shared Resource, users will follow this basic operational workflow:

  1. An investigator directs an initial inquiry:
    1. For pathology consultation, please contact Dr. Brent Harris at bth@georgetown.edu
    2. For general inquiries and histology services, please contact Dr. Anju Duttargi at ad1155@georgetown.edu
    3. For IHC, multiplex IHC, and imaging services, please contact Dr. Aaron Rozeboom at ar459@georgetown.edu
    4. For general inquiries and tissue banking, please contact Ms. Krysta Chaldekas at Krysta.Chaldekas@georgetown.edu
  2. An initial meeting is held during which the feasibility of the project and the overall research plan are discussed. The investigator is also notified of the service charges.
  3. Once deemed feasible, all pertinent information including laboratory personnel dedicated for the project and grant/funding account will be provided by the user.
  4. Investigator lab personnel undergo training (as applicable).
