Supporting the Behind-the-Scenes Health Care Experts

A gift to the Department of Pathology can spur the detective work that goes into medical diagnoses and the search for answers of how diseases develop and progress. It can also help us train future leaders in the field.

We partner with colleagues across campus to lend our expertise to patient care and scientific investigations. We are providing and improving routine and complex specialized testing for heart disease, neurological conditions, children’s diseases, and the full spectrum of health care challenges. We are also gaining new insights on cancer biology and aging.

Your support will enable us to:

  • Launch new research projects
  • Leverage data and genetic science to improve personalized medical treatments, including for cancer
  • Translate laboratory discoveries into new therapies for patients
  • Develop next-generation laboratory information systems
  • Support diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in our department and our field
  • Train the next generation of game-changing pathologists

Consistently ranked among the top pathology departments in total funding from the National Institutes of Health, we are committed to cultivating the brightest and best scientific minds and encouraging bold, innovative ideas. Your generosity will help us build on a strong foundation to transform medicine for the future.
