Activity Description

The IOM will respond to questions from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) regarding the appropriate use of the biospecimens to be maintained by the Joint Pathology Center (JPC). The mission of the JPC includes support of pathology material collected by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (the Tissue Repository) and pathology material from DoD Military Treatment Facilities closed by the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) program (the BRAC collection). The JPC also serves a larger role as the pathology reference center for the federal government.
