Pathology

Research

The research interests and activities of our faculty cover a broad range that includes basic science, translational research, and clinical research. Particular areas of strength in the basic sciences are cancer biology, cell cycle regulation, genomics, inflammation, immunology, signal transduction, and stem cell research.

Our department has been a consistent leader in the application of basic science discoveries to improving the diagnosis of human disease. Of note are the development of immunophenotyping for the classification of lymphomas and the use of gene expression microarrays for developing a molecular taxonomy of human cancers.

A major focus of clinical research in the department continues to be the correlation of patient outcome and treatment response with the surgical pathologic diagnosis of human cancers. A strong effort has recently been made to strengthen research programs in laboratory medicine with a focus on molecular diagnosis and infectious diseases.

The department is home to approximately 50 postdoctoral scholars and 30 graduate students from various PhD programs. Many of our residents and clinical fellows are actively engaged in laboratory research as well. Our department consistently ranks very high in peer-reviewed NIH research funding, particularly given the relatively small size of our faculty.
