The Immunopathology and Electron Microscopy Units are located on the fifth Floor of the Warren Building. Research space includes over 40,000 square feet divided among four main facilities at Mass General, Charlestown, and Charles River Plaza.

Library Facilities

The Pathology Department's Mallory Library contains current pathology journals, such as Nature, Science, Cell, and more. A library for the use of the clinical pathology residents is adjacent to the Clinical Pathology residents' office. Both are open 24 hours a day. Treadwell Library is well equipped with a wide range of journal titles, textbooks, and bibliographic search capabilities.

An additional twenty-five computers are available for the use of the residents. All computers are equipped to access PowerPath. BRS Colleague, Medline and other clinical and research information search tools are also available on these computers.
