Mohamed Eldibany, MDDirector
Core Lab (Biochemistry/Hematopathology/Immunopathology)

The hematology laboratories of NorthShore University HealthSystem are located at Evanston, Glenbrook, and Highland Park Hospitals.  Routine tests are performed at all laboratories, while specialized testing is done at Evanston Hospital.  The scope of services includes diagnostic hematopathology and sophisticated hemostasis and thrombosis testing.  My personal interest is diagnostic hematopathology, hemostasis, thrombosis and teaching.  Our laboratory is also involved in collaborative research with various others departments.
