About Us

The Department of Pathology includes 90+ faculty members and diverse clinical, research, and education programs. Pathology is both a basic science focused on understanding disease mechanisms, and a clinical discipline central to health care delivery. A majority of clinical decisions are based on the results of diagnostic tests performed by pathologists and clinical laboratory scientists, supported by a highly trained workforce of laboratory professionals. The Department of Pathology is also the home for the basic science fields of microbiology and immunology in the School of Medicine.
