Cellular and Molecular Pathology (PhD)

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The cellular and molecular pathology program integrates cellular and molecular biology with the study of human diseases, often in the context of Regenerative Medicine with translational goals. Utilizing the latest technologies, the program combines both basic science and clinical research to explore fundamental questions related to the biology of normal tissue growth and embryonic development, current best practices in tissue engineering, and the cellular and molecular pathways leading to disease development in both human and animal models. Active research programs investigate diverse topics such as liver development, disease and transplantation, developmental neuroscience and neurological diseases, mechanisms of gene regulation, cancer biology, angiogenesis, pulmonary disease, inflammation and autoimmunity, genetics, bioinformatics, and molecular diagnostics. Research laboratories are located throughout the medical center campus and research studies involve both basic research scientists (PhD’s) and clinician scientists (MD/PhD’s).
