Pathology is a significant component of the medical sciences to understand the nature of the disease and a major field in diagnosis and modern medicine. It incorporates a wide range of medical practices and bioscience research to diagnose disease mostly by analysing cells, tissues and body fluids. Molecular medicine is an emerging area that aims to understand the molecular determinants of disease and health for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment using physical, chemical, biological and medical techniques. The Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine is a clinical department with a major research focus in cancer, hemostasis and vascular biology. Trainees therefore have opportunities to pursue comprehensive training in basic and translational biomedical research, an example being diagnostic, predictive and prognostic biomarker research. The graduate programs offer opportunities to pursue advanced degrees under the supervision of an exceptional group of basic, clinical and translational researchers.
