Dear fellow histonetters,

I am involved with the teaching of histology to medical students. We
have great difficulty finding them examples of tissue which does not
show any pathological changes or fixation artifacts. I have tried
animal tissue and have met with a fair amount of success. I will
continue to try and find examples of animal tissue when we need them
. I am interested to know what other sources are available to me .
Human normal tissues have been a real problem to obtain.  I have
heard of the Cooperative Human Tissue Network(CHTN) via the histonet.
Could anybody give some advice as to whether this source is worth
persueing.  I am not sure if the cost,logistics etc. is worth it.
