NSH maintains a tissue bank but they are paraffin blocks we do not have wet
tissue which is what I think you will need for the HT exam as you are
suppose to process your own.  Contact coroner's or University in your area
and ask for autopsy tissue.  If you do autopsy at your place ask your morgue
deaner or the pathologist for help with this.  You can also try to access
surgical specimens from where ever they go to be grossed.
