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. The research goal in the Department of Pathology is to extend our knowledge of the mechanisms of disease, especially at the molecular level. Such detailed information will hopefully lead to improved diagnoses, treatment, and eventually, prevention.

Their work suggests that allopurinol, a generic drug already on the market, could offer some relief. ... Read MorePathology
