Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Pathology Graduate Program is to develop our students into independent scientists prepared to pursue a diversity of careers.  The end goal is for our graduates to be capable of elucidating the mechanisms and origins of human disease at the molecular and/or organismal level.  Additionally, the Graduate Program will provide students the opportunity to translate mechanistic insights gained at the bench to clinically relevant applications. Robust collaborations with faculty from Pathology and other disciplines as well as other graduate students and alumni allow us to keep the Pathology Graduate Program at the forefront of the continuously evolving biomedical sciences.
