Faculty Members

The Department of Pathology is in the College of Medicine.

Pathology is a broad-based discipline involving the study of the mechanisms of disease at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ levels. Research in experimental pathology utilizes the techniques of modern biology, including recombinant DNA technologies, immunochemistry methods, electron microscopy and a variety of in vitro and in vivo model systems. The applicability of the findings in the experimental pathology laboratory is frequently tested on tissue samples and body fluids from patients.

Both basic and clinical pathology principles are featured in medical student, resident and graduate student teaching. Students are provided with knowledge of disease processes upon which to build a comprehensive understanding of the biomedical literature in other disciplines as well as pathology. Current concepts arising from the most recent laboratory findings are constantly introduced into the curriculum. Educational and research programs focus on a wide spectrum of health care problems including cancer, AIDS, heart disease, genetic diseases, aging, immune disorders and neurologic diseases.
