Department of Pathology

The Department of Pathology is dedicated to understanding the basis of disease, to teach knowledge to others, and to apply our understanding to improve medical diagnoses and treatment of patients.

Such detailed information will hopefully lead to improved diagnoses, treatment, and eventually, prevention.
