Investigative Histopathology


Interpretation of histological slides from all systems and organs


  • Read and interpret tissues at the request of researchers that are not working in the field of pathology
  • Establish criteria for interpretation
  • Management of histological databases for research


Trained in pathology in Algeria, Mrs. Feryel Azzi will assist you in all aspects of the tissue study, including the planning and execution of analyzes. 

Dr. Dominique Trudel has been a pathologist in tissue research since 2001 (Nature Genetics 2015, Nature 2017, Modern Pathology 2014, BJU International 2018, see full list of publication). Her expertise has been applied in many fields, whether in biomarker evaluation, histo-technical correlations or tissue technique development.
