The graduate program in Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology provides a curriculum of courses and a broad-based multidisciplinary approach to research in mechanisms of human disease leading to
Master of Science and
Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The program emphasizes:
Bone and Matrix Pathobiology
Vascular and Cardiovascular Pathobiology
Immunopathology, Lymphatics, and Transplantation
Neuropathobiology and Endocrine Disorders
Microbiology and Infectious Disease
The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology offers excellent research training programs that address the nature and molecular mechanisms of human disease. Over 130 faculty members, on campus and at university teaching hospitals, conduct studies and teach courses related to pathobiology and supervise students in the PhD and MSc programs. The department provides a unique academic research environment that encourages interaction among clinicians, scientists, and student trainees. Students can gain an excellent understanding of how discoveries in basic and clinical research settings lead to more effective strategies in the treatment of human illness.
Research foci include:
Antimicrobial Resistance: Surveillance and Mechanisms
Bone and Connective Tissue Diseases including Disorders of Mineral Metabolism
Cancer Pathogenesis and Prevention
Development: Cell Cycle, Differentiation, Signalling
Endocrine and Neuroendocrine Disorders
Hematopathology and Transfusion Medicine
Immunopathology and Transplantation
Proteomics and Bioinformatics
Protein Structure and Function
Vascular Cell Biology
Students may also be interested in the combined degree program in Medicine, Doctor of / Doctor of Philosophy (MD/PhD).
