The Department of Pathology and Immunology contributes to the School of Medicine's robust biomedical research endeavors. The skills and interests of the Department's 67 full-time faculty members span the range of cell biology and disease pathogenesis. Our research facilities are diverse and contemporary, and include a several state-of-the-art core laboratories that contribute to investigative activities throughout the medical school.

Because pathology combines basic research in disease pathogenesis with clinical medicine, our discipline is ideally positioned to lead in many areas of so-called translational research. Pathology will continue to play important roles in moving new scientific discoveries from the lab bench to the clinical bedside.

The Department has outstanding physical support for its diverse basic, clinical, and translational research activities. Pathology faculty and programs are located at several sites on the medical campus. A new building scheduled for completion in 2010 will allow us to further integrate our clinical and research efforts. This environment will also include signature programs of the BioMed 21 initiative in the School of Medicine.
